    Engine number has been changed. The 1940 portion isn't factory. Too bad as it is an OHV which is the more desirable single. The OHV is about the same value as a good 45, the SV version a third less.

    So with the bad numbers probably already too much?

    Racers are after the OHV stuff, and lots of racers don't care about numbers, so they will fight for it.

    I thought they'd only be after the dual port heads

    The F is bs also. All the baf's photos i have are dual ports. That does not mean that guys here didn't stamp the F to get around a vin number or buy a dual port from antique motorcycle works. All the ones i have photos of are older restorations.

    I would’ve liked to have seen inside the cam cover to see if it had roller lifters and ohv cams. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s a side valve conversion considering it’s that close to running but doesn’t actually run. $16k I hope it’s not for the new owners sake.

    it is most likely a 29 BA ,the f and the 1940 are wrong font, you can still see traces of original numbers behind the 1940, the head is a stock BA single port, with fuel primer , not a racing head, BAF heads are twin port, racing heads have no fuel primer, larger valves, duel springs per valve,inside springs are flat sided. the carb is a Wheeler Scheibler GX4,, there is enough there to make a nice 29 BA street bike ,top speed is only about 45-55 mph.
