Not really, by the time I get the moulds sorted(which need a load of work as they are only part made) a batch made, machined, necks made, caps sorted, crackled, the cap etc they will the price they cost.

If you want you can buy the sample cover and the plug and try and do it yourself for two and six.........

Hi Mark, do you have any pictures of the rear face?

I'm curious how it is a 7 port when the inlets still seem to be bifurcated into two at the front and then if it had 4 exhaust outlets on the rear it would be a 6 port. However it may be just the picture and shadow so it has 2 carbs on the front and two on the back I suppose.

That Speedwell 7 port looks like it would have terrible inlet flow.

Yes, developed by Ken Elder in Australia. They make a 7 port now apparently.
