Parts you'll probably never see again-

I'm taking it easy in the garage for a while due to a nasty bike accident (punctured/collapsed lung, lacerated liver, 4 broken ribs, etc.) so instead of bike pics, I'll post some parts.

Here's an Avon High Speed tire, made in the 50's for land speed racing at Bonneville, etc. They could be run on a front or rear wheel. It's a 3.50x20, so the outer diameter is the same as a 3.00x21. It was refered to as the "200 MPH tire" but with the cracks in the sidewall, I don't have the desire to take it over 50 mph. There were some very important world records set on these tires, so it would be really interesting to find out more about it. Thanks to Paul at Show and Go for the info here.

This is a dual carb manifold for a 650 Triumph. It's similar to the one sold by Unity Equipe but without the fins, and it's a little smaller. Much better looking than the Webco 2 piece adapter, and it has a crossover/balance tube. I've never seen another, so any info is appreciated.
