Iíll probably post the k3 shortly in for sale/classifieds, will be letting it fo to a capable rider only (for my conscience sake) at about six large, which is leas than the motor build cost! Only a few thousand milea on it. Thought Iíd show up and let you guys in here know... I canít think of where to find more qualified riders Iím open to passing this monster on to. Anyway, I donít think Iím supposed to mention solicitation in this thread, so trying to thread the needle here until I get it up in classified with some details. I LOVE the unbelievable torque and power but just canít make enough use of it with my life routine and the wife is always anxious when I take that rare ride. Itís just waaay too much for me any more...

Update when I am able. I know JP finally let his go... hope all is well with his bike and the new owner. That thing was the peak of what this model had to offer! Be safe, guys... always good to pop in and see how you all are doing.

You will find a great owner!! Just make sure he is experienced and knows what he is getting into. More upkeep with stroker motors d/t stress on the crank bearings. Tell whoever buys it to change the oil every 500 miles and they will be good!! Clean oil is best oil; I can't over-stress that.

I miss my old 1143....she was fun to ride.

Actually, for all the hype... I’m a straigh-six guy. Corvette is neat but I really like the Supra. Having had three, still have the ‘89 Turbo now 25+ years, it’s THE car I really identify with most. 🙂

Stay tuned... 😎
