You know, I sure wish I could go back now and look at the pictures of the engines so I could see exactly what they were. Nixon's took it off their site. I looked at the pictures a while back, but I don't remember exactly what was what.
The IHC Highwheeler went for $42500, and that was with one of the seats missing.
Bought a drill press. Lots of good deals on tools. Not so much on the engines. An 1.5/2.5 HP LA with the wrong paint color went for $550. A friend of mine bought his LA with the correct colors and just as complete for half of that amount about ten miles from this auction back in May, off of Craigslist. The Tom Thumb went for $200 more than I paid for mine three months ago. Good for the family, I suppose, but not for keeping this hobby affordable.
Does anyone know the history of the Schurman family in Woodland? I saw a Farmall Cub with some attachments that had the Schurman Machine Works decals on it. I had never heard of them.
I dont know alot about Clyde, other then he had a good size machine shop. Paul, Clyde's Brother and Alan, Clyde's Nephew, own Paul Schurman Machine in Ridgefield, WA. They also have a pretty good size operation. Some of the greatest people in the hobby by far, and they do some immaculate machine work on some of the things I have seen Alan do. http://www.schurmanmfg.com/
Curious as to whether anything was wrong with the 10-20 Titan. $8,000 seems a tad low compared to recent prices. Looked to be a nice original with extension rims. Maybe there was something the pictures didn't convey? Thanks!
I doubt the cylinders are going to crumble on that engine unless the current owner lets it dry out.
That engine has been at Clyde's place at least 25 years and doesn't look much worse than when I first saw it in the late 70's. It did go through a flood in 1996(?) when the Lewis river overflowed its banks and.
It was one of the first engines I saw run at Clyde's place when I got into this hobby in the mid to late 70's. That 3 cylinder engine makes some nice stak music when its running. I would have loved to had it, but I stay away from engines I can't haul behind my pickup legally.
