Yup. I'm already looking at all my old bikes and figuring out what I'm going to use it for.

It's in really great shape, too. Really clean inside. Same seals as the V1, so an easy rebuild.

Funny thing, is it was supposed to come with a pancake exhaust. It arrived in the USA from Italy in July, then the tracking just stopped.

Found out from the postman that it had to be repackaged because the box was soaked with oil and it smelled like gas, so by whatever postal rules apply, they opened it up, took the exhaust out, reboxed it and finally sent it to me.

It still had a bunch of oil in the case.

So moral of the story, if you're shipping an engine, drain the oil first, and wrap it in plastic.
