I've been watching these. All too expensive for my taste considering the condition except maybe the first one. That 4 valve one was originally priced at 11 grand! I messaged the seller to see if they might reconsider that price point, but they didn't lower til it went unsold twice. The horn looks nice but the valves are pretty rough.

The top one, however looks to be in good mechanical shape, too bad for that "GaTech" being crudely scratched into the bell though.

It's big and heavy, that means it's expensive. :) The 1st time they listed the 4 valve they had 16 grand on it :shock: Guessing they will have it for awhile. :wink:
