Some photos would be a great place to start from.

I have bought and sold these engines for the last 4 years.

I paid $5.00 for my first one at a garage sale. I have bought an old new in the box for $200.00.

I have seen them sell form $35 to $230 on ebay, depending on the shape they were in and the particular interest at the time. I have had people ask for $450 for an old new in the box.

If you are selling it out of your area shipping is about $20 to $25.

I have not seen many buyers wanting to ship a bike.

I can keep my ears open for you.

So send some pictures - I~ll tell you what I know.

Hi Mike,
Please see the postings a little lower down on the list.
It~s hard to guage the value without seeing it in person, but I would recommend you get in touch with Mike Schneider. He is the expert I.M.H.O. on these motor kits.
Hope this helps,
Rif
