    Just got this back from the welding shop, and have moved on to other projects since then. It's an early 50's Columbia frame that's been stretched about 8 inches, has a motor plate for a Briggs 5 horse, although no engine is included. Brand new semi slick balloon type tires, has a rim welded to the back wheel as a pulley so it can use a belt drive centrifugal clutch. Not the prettiest thing in the world, but the frame is very stiff, no flex at all where it's been welded. Needs someone with more skill and interest than me, but will make an awesome board tracker. It has some surface rust only. I'll be posting pictures hopefully soon. Located in central MA- email [email protected] or text 508-981-8773 (no calls please, my microphone bit the dust). Make me an offer.

    ^Fine, then tell me what it's worth. It's had a lot of work done and I'm definitely gonna lose money on it. It does need work, yes, but it's a great start.

    Someone make an offer, I know $300 is high, I'll probably take a lot less.

    You're not out of line on the price. The market is just so tiny for people that are capable of this type of build. You just need to find someone capable that will appreciate the head start. I'll show it to a few of my customers and quote them on it completed, one I know is in the market I just have to see what he thinks.

    It doesn't come with the block that is in one of the pictures, which is junk, and the handlebars shown don't quite fit, but everything else is included.

    If I had to offer it would be at about 150. I don't have tons for a four stroke but I've wanted to do one so bad. I'll even pay shipping.

    Could you do $175? I'll try and figure out where I can bring it to have it shipped.

    For me to pull out 150 out of my a$$ is a challenge. For me to pull 175 is harder. I'm full-time at my job but I only make about 300. I know that shipping is gonna be about 50 to 100. I'm pretty much taking a whole paycheck for this as it is.

    Still for sale. Sorry lucajo16, I don't think I can sell for that low. I just need to make back more of my money on this one. I have $450 into it so far.
