Running B25SS/B25T T25SS/T25T Engine

I am needing a running 1971 engine to get a project under way while I spend a million dollars doing a complete race engine build. I prefer the Triumph, but at this point, I am not going to be that picky. I can have anything shipped in to my work.

Kind of a funny concept. A running B25 / T25 motor out of the frame for sale. Almost always a B25 / T25 motor on the loose is out of the bike for a reason. Usually a done in big end. You want a running motor means you will need to buy a running bike to get it out of. Or you get real lucky and buy a motor from someone "well it was running before it was parked 15 years ago" that doesn't need to be re-built to some degree.

Cheers, Peter

Yea, I know. Have you looked for engines on eBay? You may be surprised at the amount of "running" engines from bikes that get parted out. I bought and had shipped a "running" 2005 Triumph air cooled twin to me off of eBay for $415. Almost all of those same engines are listed for over $1000, plus a few hundred for shipping. I bought a titled frame the same way, for only $285, shipped. I like to think that you never know until you ask...
