Big collection of Airhead engines and parts to sell off

An old man contacted me as he was 'getting out' of the Airhead and motorcycle game ... and wanted to know if I would buy his stuff. He needed the cash so I did. Hopefully, I can catalog all of this stuff and send a list, but if you need something just give me a shout as I will be more than happy to 'spread the love' ... and be pretty generous, as he was to me.

Yep, but let's make sure this stuff gets used... as the previous hoarder didn't.

Time to buy a soda blaster and parts washer, and maybe even play the "lets lighten the crank and see what happens" game

That'll mean we can also start shaving ribs, and chamfering gears and seeing what kind of weight we can REALLY get these things down to.

Depending on the conditions of the parts on my own incoming haul, I may be a buyer on some of this.

I will post some more this evening. Maybe just the top of the boxes ... there is so much stuff. And the little pits are everywhere. And there was some interesting stuff here as well ... and yes, the first thing I did was began wearing one.

Yes, a soda blaster may be in order.

And that crank is HEAVY. I really didn't think it weighed THAT much ...

I spy a few things I'd like as well.

Wish I could help you organize that mess, I'd love to do that someday with no expectation of reward.
