Looks nice, been relisted though, description maybe put some buyers off, think if I'd listed it I'd have shied off the brand new claim, tad confusing

For that price it would want to be brand new.
But it might be. Re-manufactured is an ambiguous term. Same bloke who's selling new thick-flange barrels.
Its the 'listing for a friend' bit I dont buy!

Briz,

Please change your AVATAR

Every time I look at it I want to paint my barrels red,  looks very cool indeed!
Please remove  *smile*

Well, he does say cash on collect, so isn't a scam i presume.

If the head is genuinely 'brand new' I'd like to know who cast it and where.  As for price, buying a scruffy 'unknown' ally head for a few hundred pounds (recent ebay prices have been in this region) and then having to find a further few hundred for machining (for those of us without extensive machine shop facilities), new guides etc. quickly approaches the £750 starting figure.  Buying 'unseen' would be my biggest concern - and I note the 'no returns' statement.
I wonder if it's cast with -1549, ready to be overstamped with -1571.  Have I remembered those numbers right?

If anyone has a large valve head going spare I'm interested!

Nice price, then spend another £200 on valves, springs, cups, collets retainers etc.... *eek*
