It might be a tough sell as it looks to me that the numbers have been restamped. Jeff

Not to give you a hard time or anything, but you might get more replies if you provide a link.

Curiosity got the best of me, tho so I googled it. My personal opinion is that this deal looks dicier than a pile of vomit by the craps table. First of all: $750??? How did he check the compression again? Just what is a title worth on a motor where you can see that it's been badly re-stamped from about a mile away? And $750????





A smattering:
'53 Gold Flash
'67 Royal Star
'71 Rickman Metisse
'40 Silver Star
'37 Rudge Special
sixtyseventy Lightboltrocket road racer...and many more.

Hi Dudley
Its hard to tell what year it is because there never was a A7 engine stamped DA 7 R xxxx. They were stamped CA7 or CA7SS & are 500cc stock. But with a restamp you never know. I would pass on this one. Unless you can get cheap. My 2 cents. Jeff
