Default Buckshot's BRM Series

Love them or hate them, some serious work went into that line of carbs...

When I bought mine, I was dissapointed to hear they weren't KING SHIT because they are beautifuly crafted! No doubt one of the best looking carbs ever built.

I would speculate, that maybe Andrew Buck was dissapointed as well. I'd imagine he put a small fortune in getting them right. There is no way he recoup'd his cost on these. Only a handful were ever sold for full price, and they were a disaster. Maybe if they would have been easier to tune, but that HUGE bombsite gave it a ton of signal.

I bet somebody got them to work right!

I think Crazy mentioned something about the shaft seal having issues?

Thanks for posting a pic of them. they sure are pretty. look at all the tooling (milling ) that went in to them. they sure make the stockers look like crap. too bad that can't compete.

crazy, those things in good enough shape to reserect?? I'm going to start assembling the Hurricane package (ported 777 with twin pipes) and I think those would work just fine for the Cane. Toss me a PM and a price if they are salvagable.

Al,
They're really not bad and everything is there EXCEPT for the little wire clips that the arm uses to lift the needle out of the seat??? Don't know who monkied with them, but they're missing. Other than that, they will need a connector rail and some cleaning up, (exterior)
but they're not bad.
