New Bonneville wanted in trade for chopper

The guy I built this '53 Thunderbird chopper for is in failing health and can't kickstart it
(although it fires up instantly for me with the brand new Joe Hunt magneto and Superior carb).

He wants a New Bonnie in good shape and some cash (he's got over $10K in the chopper).

Anyone interested?

1953 Triumph 6T Thunderbird 650 "iron head" twin
.040 over pistons, '69 Bonnie crank & main bearing conversion
oversize valves w/ new iron guides, new Joe Hunt magneto
JRC Superior carb, big-bore straight pipes
Original Triumph hardtail raked frame (powdercoated)
chromed girder forks; original Triumph sprung rear hub
with 16" rear whitewall, 17" narrow front wheel on spool hub
sprung solo saddle; 1" handlebars & controls
solid state regulator/rectifier, 6 volt modern bulbs
digital speedometer w/ clock
