Thanks Mike!... I appreciate the thought......
I already have about 8 Sprints in parts and boxes to build first...LOL...... I'll probably end up with only four bikes as the parts are NOT exactly pristine, and it often takes multiple donors to get one complete bike..... However, I only have about twice his asking price invested in ALL of them together........ :lol:

GB... Forget what it looks like....Just get on one and ride.....While not a rocket-ship, the bike does quite well for a 250cc pushrod single..... Good acceleration with the accompanying initial "grunt", and a top speed of near 90....Feels almost as if you are riding a (weightless) bicycle that pedals itself very fast......No effort to steer, you just think of where you want to go and it tracks there... Very comfortable, both in ride and ergonomics...And a wonderful, throaty exhaust note that only a "thumper" can provide....
The only downside was the electrics.... 6VDC, Battery and Generator/with mechanical regulation...Bosch components, but an antiquated design... Mine get converted to a 12VAC system that uses a magneto as an alternator and Honda 350 rectifier and regulator..... Problem solved....

You NEVER cease to amaze me with your ingenuity Steve! Are you really a secret agent, or a Nasa engineer? :lol:
