Hey Steve,
Why wouldn't you start building those clones, you have the skill and the parts.
Even an official clone will probably go for over $10K.

It would have to go for $15,000 as it would take at least $10000 to replicate it. Check out the bike I raced this year on my website ,I'm asking $10000

You don't have to go into the motor in order to build a clone, no one will be buying it to go vintage racing, it only have to look like the real thing.

To build that even without the motor mods costs big bucks;
swingarm $1250
Carbs $850
Dymags good used $1000 new $3000
Bodywork seat/paint $1000
Rear sets $400
Brakes/discs $1500
Exhaust $650
.......
I could build a replica ELR for around $6000 but an S1 replica is a completely different thing.

The problem is, you can dump all that money into this thing, but the gas tank still doesn't say "Norton" :wink: :twisted: :lol:

How about a Ducati 851 factory kit race bike for 20K British Pounds, seems a better deal.
