Notes =-- Body looks like it is prepped for paint, and not brushed.

Pipes need to be fitted and coated -

body NOT cut for sidepipes -- could be an undercar -CAR!!!

Anyone want a CSX >?

Steve, you can get a brand new 427 Kirkham for $57,000 with most options in file finish, which is the finish of the one in the eBay ad.

I saw it a few days ago, but I didn't think it was much of a deal since the seller is probably looking for close to the BIN price of $55K.

Steve,

Sounds like you have a very serious case of Aluminum-itis

I think a lot of money buckets nowadays have some mighty big leaks ... but if you can part with the SPF or CSX, that ought to help make it a bit easier.

There is a KMP in your future

Understood ... you have put a lot of time, effort and custom features into that ride, more to come for the SPF or are you done ?

To me that looks like a file finish. Long way to go before you paint it.

Looks good to me!
Mine was painted over file finish, lots of "high build primer/surfacer" and lots of sanding!n (no, I didn't do it)
Does a new roller have the kirkham 3rd member at the $57k price?
YIKES Metal car, exposed terminals on batt sw in trunk Better cover that puppy before putting your clubs in there, or your "hole-in-one" will be a black, smoking ONE!!

Default i emailed the owner

tried to explain that the pricing on a 2010 Kirkham with the same spec is $57-$58K ...that in some states transfering a certificate of origin can be tricky etc...he doesn't care...no negotiation....this one will get listed over and over its not a deal at the price being asked

Tim --

The SPF is under minor revisions now, I worked very hard on the combination that is in there and it drives really well.

I have been thinking of minor upgrades here and there, but who knows, if i get bored -- things could change.

I think I need to concentrate on some other more pressing needs / things and DRIVE the SPF!

Steve
