Is there a demand for the in-line four 25hp these days ?

I seem to recall many years ago that they were a hot item.

Heard of one in these parts.   Doubtful the owner will let it go however.

They were always missing the crown jewel that was the WA-25 faceplate.  Rumor was the 30H racers gobbled them up for the dark block with supposed padded cylinders.
