Thought as much! Is it possible that a bike has some Electra parts to make it look like an Electra (Air-filter box for instance) but the engine is actually a Standard '76?

Will try and post some pics as soon as possible

The carb is a new one. Forget the stickering, that can be replaced.

Papers are clear? Check for details on there.

How much?

Well, actually a friend of mine is dealing with the owner. Will ask him to have a look at the RC Book to see the real date and also to see if all papers are in order. I have attached another closeup of the engine. Hope that will be of more help.

The owner is quoting 30K for this. Not sure if it is worth it. But friend says that it rides well and sounds great!

"Looks" good enough for 30k. Papers would be the key.

Default Some more help needed

Also, from the pics I have posted, can anyone advise if it is indeed an older Standard 350? Owner claims this to be a '76. As SpitFire said, the carb seems to be a new one. I don't want too many pieces of different bikes on this. Not a Frankenstein monster!
