With 3 hours to go this H2A is close to being mine, but if it's anything like other E-Bay auctions I've been involved in, about a dozen others will place bids in the last 30 seconds and it'll end up in someone else's garage.

Looks like a nice bike (for a change) with only a couple of minor faults . . . . I hope he doesn't leave that tap on prime for much longer! It'll be interesting to see what it sells for . . . . I may have to re visit my insurance values   Rolling Eyes

I was wondering the same thing about the petcock setting. Since I haven't been around these for a while, would you mind pointing out some of the other things you noticed as "minor faults". I'd really appreciate it...

Thanks

I'm a bit surprised but happy with my purchase price. Looks like I'm going to be back on a triple again for the first time in over 37 years. I'm looking forward to it...

Congrats!! That is a beautiful example and a stunner. Check when you get it to see if they rubber mounted the rear chamber mounts. From what I could see, that is suspect. Also, when you go through your paperwork/ receipts on parts ordered, please let me know which brand chambers are those that allow centerstand retention. PM me please there when you get a chance. I know you are excited as preparing to receive your rare H2A!  cheers  salut
