In case anyone's looking for Esprit S1 project

 

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/d/brentwood-1978-lotus-esprit-s1-project/7736346099.html

I'm helping my friend selling his project Lotus Esprit S1. The car will need a full restore This was my old car before I sold it to him 5 years ago. It has a brand new windshield, it has the gold Enkei wheels not S2wheels, straight body. Jensen healey engine, dual Stromberg carburetors. steering wheel not original. Due to his busy work schedules he can only show the car on weekend.

Old pix was taken 5 years ago. I think it covered with dust now.

Bonus points for honesty, seller mentions that it will take a lot of money to restore

Yep, Oakland. You have an appropriate handle. Almost everyone I know rode a RD back in the day, and some still do!

Yeah, I had a few in the '70's. Really great bikes of that era and they're still pretty remarkable today.

We should see if we can put a SF Bay Area meetup together sometime. Maybe even a Challenge team...
