So....who sold all of their internal organs (or external...) and bought these 50mm Mikunis for AUD $12K!? :o

I love how that's caused a stir on FB. These look rebuilt and cleaned up etc.. well worth it. I spent $1000+ on vapour blasting my carbs and will spend even more on top doing gaskets / fasteners etc.. on top of purchase price shipping + taxes etc..

A good set of 44s will cost $4-5k once sorted on a manifold and installed / tuned etc.. especially if they are a rough set to begin with.

50mm Solex are pretty rare and desirable. Seems reasonable to pay a bit more for them.

Haha, yeah, it's pretty funny!

I agree, plus if you have spent the money on a motor that needs 50mm triple carbs, it makes sense you spend the money on the carbs!

Maybe a little optimistic at US$8575 you think!

But then again, you don't come across car parts made from 'unobtainium' every day now.......do we!

I have two 'new in box' S30's which are worth a lot less - just shows the effects of 'economy of scale'

As someone that has been in this position, this is completely untrue and I would never spend $12k on carbs. When you get to the end of the build, I assure you that you are not looking for more ways to spend money on it. I picked up brand new DCO 50 Webers for $2200 delivered which give the same performance and 80% of the drivability of the Mikuni and put them on the same Harada big-port manifold. For the kind of money you are talking here, you could have a top of the line ITB setup with a good ECU and crank triggered ignition. 

I get that they are cool, but if you are just after the performance there are better and cheaper options.

This Ebay seller in the UK has some interesting Z parts for sale

The RHD Bulhead panel kit looks well made as do the frount chassis rails.

Jeff

Certainly has some replacement panels that look to be well made.

There is a whole class structure when it comes to rims these days. If you fit the inferior product be prepared to be judged accordingly.
