Icon4 Selling Vulcan parts (maybe)

I had to replace my engine due to a dropped valve spring the extent of the damage im not exactly sure. I suspect a valve may have dropped into the cylinder probably scratching one of the cylinder walls to some extent. Piston damage could also be a possibility. I haven't had a chance to pull the valve head off to confirm it. I had a repair shop install a different engine and now I'm debating whether or not to keep the old one. It'll be a ***** to move it around but my moneys so tight right now it'll be worth the hassle if I could make a little money off it.

Is there anyone here that might be interested in buying some vulcan parts, or the engine as a whole? The engine ran quiet as a church mouse, smooth, and didn't burn a drop of oil. It's only got 85,000km on it

Just post or send me a PM. If I know at least a few people are interested I'll consider bringing the engine home with me.

Thanks
