Very original Model 195 250cc Astro.
This bike is unrestored, unmolested,
in original condition. It is very original,
about 95% there, and in very good condition.
It doesn't shine or sparkle, but it will clean
up very nice, and will then be an excellent,
original example of this historic racebike.
I believe it is worth more cleaned up and left
as is, rather than restored. That's why I never
restored this bike.

It does need some work and repairs, the worst being
the side stand mount is torn off the frame.

The seat, tank, wheels, pipe, suspension are all
excellent. It ran perfect when I parked it, probably
4 years ago. I am selling this because I don't have
the time to make it right, and I have been saying that
for at least 5 years now. Too many other projects.

$3500 firm or I'll just keep it until I get to it.

This is probably a stupid question but...
Are you gonna be at Springfield &
if so...
were you gonna toss the Astro in the trunk &
bring it along?

Also...
Did You Say "Extras"!:)

George, you mention Mike Rhodes.I raced with him many times as a novice in 1976,never did beat him. Is he still involved with motorcycles?
Thanks, Tom Morgan.

Art, Eddie, -- it just ain't right!!!:angry: She's dying to go play and cryin' to be rescued.:woohoo:

A customer of mine from Sweden just bought a 195 Astro from Cal. on eBay for much more than that. Plus, he is having it shipped from Cal. to me in Fla. to prepare for him. When I'm done with it I will ship it to him in Sweden where he plans to race it in the up & coming European Dirt Track races over there. When those guys over there find out how good these "purpose built" lightweights are they are going to start coming over here & cleaning us out.
