This is an original Porsche 917 steel brake rotor that wasobtained from Vasek Polak Porsches' vintage racing parts inventory shortlyafter Mr. Polak passed away in 1997. I purchased all of the remaining drilled and vented brake rotors when the vintage racing shop had a large parts inventory sale. Although all of the rotors were rusting to various degrees, I took 3 of the very worst and had them bead-blasted to see how they would turn out. They came out GREAT (see photos) I coated them with Krylon Clear aerosol acrylic paint, and they've never shown any sign of returning oxidation (see reference photo of cleaned up rotor from 1998; this auction is for an unrestored rotor ). Since I no longer had a street Porsche (especially one that used racing brakes), I used them mainly as wall displays and model car bases (they work great with a single 1/18 scale model, or with multiple 1/24, 1/32, 1/43, or HO scale slot cars. They were used on a multitude of different street and racing Porsches and could be of interest to owners of a 911, 911T T , 911E E, 911S S, 911RS RS, 911 RSR RSR, Carrera, Turbo, 934, 935, 917, 917K, 917/10, 917/20 917/30, 956, 959, 962, Can Am CanAm, or IMSA race car.
It measures approx. 11 ½ inches in diameter and have either clockwise or anticlockwise venting patterns (see photo to verify pattern and to see actual condition of the rotor you are bidding on). They are very heavy and used to cost more than $20 PER rotor to ship, but now with the USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate, I could ship up to two (recent postage changes now limit weight to 20 lbs max) per box for only $8.95 US(plus whatever insurance needed) THIS APPLIS TO DOMESTIC US SHIPPING ONLY! NOTE.....Ebay does NOT has a choice in their postage calculations for the Domestic Priority Flat Rate, so don't panic when you see the Ebay generated shipping costs!!!! Good Luck!
