Well the time has come to tear it down and part it off. :cry: After a divorce and moving to another smaller house it's time to stop the project and move on to other matters. But, the good news is I've got a lot of great stuff for sale!!

For those of you that may recall I was building a BEC middy that I designed myself. It was a tube frame, 2 seater that used some S2000 pieces and a pushrod suspension. Anyway, Except for the skin, it was built, ran and worked! Yay me! So let's get after it.

- 2000 R1 newer radiator
- Speedo Healer

- Momo Mod 26 290MM steering wheel with Bicknell splined (not hex) QR. $150

- Sheets of aluminum - it's 6061-T6 0.032"... I should have 2, 4'x12' piece and 1, 2'x8' piece. [/color] This stuff isn't cheap... :( But my price is! $300

*** PENDING SALE *** - 2000 R1 engine with new clutch, airbox, fuel pump, gauges, switches and harness (spliced with servicable deutsch automotive connectors $$$)
*** PENDING SALE *** - Hawk Adapter

I still have the frame too. My (limited) build log can be found here. I've got some CAD drawings that I did and also some suspension geometry calcs/models in WinGeo.

if it was built, ran and worked, why break it up? Did it drive?

Hi Jim,

I think it's less likely to find someone willing to complete my project instead of them wanting the satisfaction of designing and building their own. More builders can benefit from me parting it out than by me trying to sell it as a complete car....just my opinion I suppose...If anyone wants it complete or stages of completeness, I'm open to that as well.

It was driveable. The electrical needed a bit more work to finalize the wiring harness and get it all done up nicely and I had a brake pressure switch installed for the lights that leaked like a sieve. There were a few tack welds that got broken during the last move but nothing serious that can't be easily fixed.

Cheers,
Mike

What would you want total Shipping included (US Mahomet, IL 61853) for the reverse mount MC setup and does it come with the MC's if so what size?
