I had been looking for either a motorcycle powered formula car or sports racer to run at hillclimbs and track events here in PA for quite some time. As it happened, I ended up with both this car as well as a Yamaha R-1 powered Prince sports racer . I don't need 2 bike powered racecars and need to sell one of them. I have no emotional attachment to either of them and will keep whichever one doesn't sell. This Lola had been advertised here by the previous owner and we ended up doing a deal. It was listed for $8500 and i bought it for $7500 and made an 1100 mile trip to get it. I havent done anything to it since bringing it home. If it doesn't sell, I will tear it apart over the winter and get ready to put on an all-out assault on the Pennsylvania Hillclimb Association next season.

1982 Lola T-640 chassis #5 converted to T-644E wide track spec's.
- Converted to FS (over $8k in material receipts for the m/c conversion without the labor for
actual fabrication).
- Very clean car overall.
- 2001 Suzuki GSXR-1000 (low mileage stock motor converted by Beasley).
- Weight – 796 lbs. without driver.
- Stock dash with separate oil pressure and water temp gauges.
- K&N air filter, MSN fuel pump, AEI fuel pressure regulator.
- Yoshimura wiring harness.
- GDRE hydraulic clutch set up.
- Stainless steel exhaust and muffler.
- Beasley spool rear end with 530 chain (Sigma/Tsubaki).
- New Taylor Racing half shafts.
- New oil cooler.
- New Wilwood master cylinders.
- New rain light (Afterburner).
- Transponder

Spares:
- Front A-arms(top and bottom, both sides).
- Mounted rains on Compomotive wheels.
- 4 unmounted Compomotive wheels.
- Rotors and pads.
- Side panels.
- Nose
- Misc. FF parts

Misc.
- Haynes Manual, all build notes and receipts.

Here's a little different approach, a motorcycle-powered (Honda CBR1000f engine) Locost Seven clone for $8,500:

These cars typically run in DM, but DM does not allow motorcycle engines. An enclosed trailer is also available.

I have posted this car before, a Radical ProSport with a Hayabusa engine, located in Colorado:

http://dsrforumhttp://dsrforum.yuku...rIEKfkrLcs

The buyer just reduced the price to $19,000, which makes this car even more attractive. I have always felt that the Radical ProSport is a very attractive car for BM from a performance potential standpoint. It is also a very robust car, a lot more so than a LeGrand, for example. I believe that this car would be more reliable (no, Modified cars do not have to break!) than a number of production-based cars out there. Also, maintenance on this car should be no more difficult than on a "regular" car, and anybody should be able to do that at home in their garage. In addition, running costs of this car would also be less than a number of production-based cars out there. You would need a garage, trailer and tow vehicle though when owning and campaigning this car, though. Think about it!

I am thinking of selling the KBS sports racer that I bought out of Florida.
Was listed on here but since I bought it I have:
Replaced carbs
Replaced fuel tank
Mounted a seat with new out of date belts(autocross only)
Got it running and have ran a few events.
Still trying to get the CVT setup for autocross but it's getting close.
Located in East Tennessee now. Open to trades. Looking for something street legal again. Thanks.

This is the "easy" recipe for a BM National Championship. The 3x championship winning Cheetah (including the last two years) is for sale:

1998 Omni-Fab Cheetah SR-1 sports racer, Suzuki GSX-R 1000: $36,000, inluding a small, open trailer

http://www.roadraceautox.com/showth...R-for-sale

This car is fully set up and optimized for autocrossing. It may be the fastest car in the country. You will not find a better opportunity to buy a competitive turn-key BM car than that.

Most of the cars I come across and post are sports racers. Not this one. This is a BM car with lots of history as it used to belong to Greg Scharnberg.

1985 Ralt RT5, 2.0 L VW engine: $17,500

Have you ever wanted to own an open-wheel Formula Atlantic car? Here is your chance!

Also posted in a different location on this site:

2000 LeGrand Mk25, Honda CBR1000RR engine, $18,000 OBO, located in CA

http://www.sccaforums.com/forums/aft/448810

This car has been a dedicated autocross car since Day 1 and was built for that purpose. A great entry point into B-Modified. It should be ready to run.

This car is the Dragon built originally at Small Fortune Racing for Vern and Betsy Lyle. National Champ in BML, podium in BM.  Converted to bike power by its' 2nd owner, could definitely be a front runner. Unless there have been changes, the car has Magnesium uprights and an SFRE Quaife drive. Body work was Sorcerer out of Texas.
