He bought the bike from a guy on base and he was told it just needs a new piston well NOT true the engine was welded together in spots that shouldn't be welded and now he just wants to get a new engine to make sure everything is okay.

Well, did he buy this bike sight-unseen? Didn't he look it over before parting with his money? I wouldn't even have considered buying a bike that I already knew needed a complete new engine, unless the bike was damn near given to me.

I think he bought it for $300-$400 not sure though but he did know the bike didn't run he bought it before I knew him and I am helping him get it running

It should work. BTW that engine will end around 5-7 hundred. Im gonna be putting up one on ebay soon.

Buy one off ebay and put your old one on and make some money back:excuseme:

before I would put it on there I would try to figure out what is wrong with it just so someone knows what they're getting into.
