Where is that at? I'd be all over that if it's reasonably close.

Ok it’s found a new home. Here is how I found it. No time to dig into it other than looking at the cams and pistons for aftermarket stuff. Appears bone stock. 66mm bore and no noticeable markings on the cams

Looks like a early motor to me not a 87/88. Another CL scam?

Maybe a 1977/78, but definitely not 87/88.

I think the SFbay seller is a little dyslexic. Regardless we know what it is and if it wasn't 2,100 miles away it would be in the back of my pickup already.

The NIB engine is probably one of a kind in the world. Over my price range a tad, but like they say.. "they don't make em anymore".

The one in the basket is a Z1 engine. I can tell by the end of the cam covers and by the "903" on the barrels. My guess is it's from 1976, based on the carbs.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Hope your wrong because that might be the one I've been looking for. I need one for my '76 LTD900

I cant believe we don't have west coast members that would be all over that deal...
