Hartge H3 2.1L Display Motor

I was doing some late night surfing on German eBay last night and came across this rare piece: A 2.1L Hartge motor for the e36 3 series and the current bid is only 188 Euros! Check out the pics:

I remember European Car’s e36 project from the mid-90’s and their rave reviews about this motor. Naturally I went to bed with visions of that badass motor in something like Paul’s 2002 project. I should’ve realized that the price was far too low, but I wanted to believe it could be possible. So this morning I ran the page through Google Translator and discovered this is actually just a display engine and is missing many key internals, like the pistons! Oh well, it was a fun pretending for a little while!

German Cars and Rare Sport Bikes Round Up: Better Late Than Never Edition!

Back from the dead, I’m wrapping up a little vacation to Georgia to see my buddy FastEddieGTi for his birthday. Having just ate an enormous steakhouse burger from the Vortex in Atlanta (kick ass burgers!), I have some downtime to catch up on some blogging chores while my food digests!

Without further ado, here are the catch up links to GermanCarsForSaleBlog and RareSportBikesForSale:

1993 Honda NSR250 MC21 SE For Sale 1993 Honda NSR250 MC21 SE For Sale – At only $5500, this would be a cool addition for the track or the weekend backroads!
Low Miles 1988 BMW M6 For Sale Low Miles 1988 BMW M6 For Sale in Montana – $22.5k sounds like a pretty good deal with this kind of mileage, and documented maintenance and upgrades. And the blue on gray with the M5 rims… Yum!
1985 Yamaha RZ500 For Sale 1985 Yamaha RZ500 For Sale in San Diego – At $7900, this falls right in line with other RZ500’s listed previously.
2001 Porsche Carrera Cabrio 2001 Porsche Carrera Cabrio – Too Cheap to be True? – So why the skeptism? 996’s of any variation start in the high teens, and those have at least twice the mileage of this car. But heaven forbid this is the real deal… well I just can’t believe it is, but it’s fun to imagine.
Ducati 900SS Superlight’s For Sale A Pair of Ducati 900SS Superlight’s For Sale – These are pretty rare bikes and I think it’s an interesting opportunity for a prospective buyer to consider a well worn example or the museum piece.
1993 Ducati 888 SPO 1993 Ducati 888 SPO: Yep Another One!! – With a $10888 asking (clever), this is one of the more expensive triple eights to be listed on this blog. While most Ducatisti will agree this where they should be, I think this seller may have a long wait before finding a buyer considering what other examples here in the states have been going for.
MC 21 NSR250 Honda’s For Sale Two More Titled MC 21 NSR250 Honda’s For Sale in California – Judging from the pictures alone, I like the Rothmans replica better from the point of aesthetics alone. For around five grand, neither one seems like that bad a deal considering they both have titles!
1984 BMW Alpina 2.8 B6 For Sale Is This The Cheapest Alpina For Sale in the U.S.? 1984 BMW Alpina 2.8 B6 For Sale – Now I’m sure “Big Ron” is a reputable guy and all, but I don’t expect this car to be a real B6 considering it’s condition and thorough listing on Craigslist. But if it is a Euro car, and it looks like it could be, and it has Alpina pieces, it’s probably worth that much in parts anyway. Could actually be a really cool basis for a project car. And heaven forbid it’s a real Alpina… It’s probably the cheapest Alpina for sale in the country.
1994 Honda CB400 Super Four 1994 Honda CB400 Super Four – Now granted that’s 47,845 miles and no title. But with all the 2 strokes that have been showing up with titles, surely it can’t be that hard to pull off. This would be such a cool in-town commuter bike!
1990 Ducati 851 1990 Ducati 851 Loaded With Expensive Upgrades – It’s sacrilege to even suggest it, but parting this bike could probably turn a tidy profit. Of course that would be a shame because this bike looks so well sorted, and for $5k it’d be a real pleasure to the ride balls off of it!
1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 For Sale 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 For Sale in New Mexico – I’m having a tough time trying to decide between a Boxster and a 964. My thinking lately is that there are far more Boxsters than 964’s, and that 964 prices might be more stable over the next couple years as a result.
Ducati Race Replicas For Sale 4 Special Edition Ducati Race Replicas For Sale Right Now – I’m really not knowledgable about the values of these bikes. But they are obviously collector examples that will command some premium in the market. Which one would you pick as best value?
1991 Honda NSR250 MC21 For Sale 1991 Honda NSR250 MC21 For Sale in Vegas Baby – These are getting cheap enough that it’s getting harder and harder to make excuses about why there isn’t one in my garage. Obviously with the sheer numbers of 2 strokes listed on this site, you know I’m a fan. Talk me out of a gray market 2 stroke… or can you at these prices?
2001 M Coupe For Sale 2001 M Coupe For Sale in Virginia – 27k miles and an asking of $24k? What could possibly be wrong with this car? I like all the modifications, but they do tend to devalue a car in the eyes of enthusiast buyers. And it also has that terrible two tone interior, red and black leather. But at this price, I’d consider it a bargain purchase and have the leather dyed!
1991 Suzuki RGV 250 VJ22 For Sale 1991 Suzuki RGV 250 VJ22 For Sale in California – $6k doesn’t sound too bad, especially considering it’s plated. And are those Arrow pipes? Yum!
BMW 2002 with Dual Webers, 5 speed, LSD, and Genuine Alpina Wheels BMW 2002 with Dual Webers, 5 speed, LSD, and Genuine Alpina Wheels – For the asking price, and the pile of rare parts that come with it, this could be a great little driver, a potential fixer-upper, or maybe even a weekend racer project. In any case, it’ll be a load of fun!
1984 Volkswagen GTI For Sale 1984 Volkswagen GTI For Sale: Clean, Original, and Affordable – As a long time MK1 and MK2 VW fan, I’d have to say it’s been since high school since I saw a Rabbit GTi this clean and original. While $4500 may seem like a lot to some, good luck finding one this nice for less.

1970 BMW 2002 For Sale: [Practically a] Barn Find Roundie!

This car was apparently in storage since 1985 and sports only 33k miles!

1970 BMW 2002 Roundie For Sale on Roadfly for $13k:

1970 BMW 2002 Roundie For Sale1970 BMW 2002 Blue Plate For Sale1970 BMW 2002 Tan For Sale

quote from ad:

This car is a time capsule. Bought new in Riverside, California in 1970 by a teacher, who only drove it back and forth to school. He parked it in his garage in 1985, and there it sat until now. This car has original interior, original paint, original blue plates (current), 4 speed, dealer installed A/C (Frigiking), no radio or sunroof. All factory stickers intact.

Car looks very sharp and reasonably priced. But if you need an even cleaner 1970 Roundie, check out this Atlantik Blue 1970 BMW 2002 previously listed (and still for sale) listing on dancrouchblog.com
