I've got a 12G295 head. The valves have been ditched and the guides worn so it's essentially a bare head. The inlets had recessed so it'll need either inserts or slightly larger inlets. It's been cleaned and is crack free, and has been skimmed 65 thou from the original 2.750 inches so the cr should be good for a 998 with fat top pistons. I suspect it's all about different opinions, but any thoughts on value?

Bare and skimmed detracts the value. If non skimmed and complete I reckon £140 upwards

OK cheers. That £50 on the skim wasn't the best investment!!

If you can show its a fresh skim and know the chamber volume you might fetch more for it.
