You should have linked to the auction. Purchased!
That was one of the last bits I needed for a proper early Edinger build.

According to a few wise guys on FB the CSC rear universals are mega rare. I have heard them parrot that only a dozen or so were produced, yet I have had a few and I often see them fs.

IMO one of the rarest items known to man is the BRP Powerglide tranny. According to Barry Raborn there were maybe 100 kits produced. Rare to find used, and impossible to find nip. Fortunately I can occasionally do impossible things. If only I could find the winning Powerball numbers...

Amazing!

It made me remember about the Bullet Racing Products wheels I have which possibly fits the topic.

CSC axles are not that rare. A guy I race with has a big lot of them from dude who made them originally.

Seriously?! I have a set of copper springs that I think are Yokomo's but I'm not certain. I'll get pictures of them later.
