Wines start with a W so it's ok...
Wine lovers... you should try Portuguese wine

Do these two photos represent some kind of puzzle to be solved?

From what I can see, those instructions look pretty straight forward and easy to understand.

Base gasket, new pistons?

Careful crossing the creek behind you You know the W is not an off road bike,

It will be interesting to see how the 814cc big bore kit goes and hard it will be to install. We are watching

Pistons, gasketss, sleeves and a small spellbook worth of instructions. Plus a sticker. Always with the stickers.

I think you're the first to notice the creek Dan. It was a sinch compared to the paddock that had been plowed a few days before - that was interesting. Power commander will shortly be on the way, the head needs some work in the ports and such, and I'm still searching for the exhaust I want. Thinking something along the system on "shaken fist" or this...

W800 on U.S. eBay

How in the hell did this guy get it into the states AND get it titled?

I saw that. I wonder as well....

Some states may not let you register it either unless it meets certain criteria. I know in CA, it's 7,500 miles for out of state vehicles.

Some states have a set of acceptable VIN's in their computer. If your VIN series isn't in there, they won't title it.

Who ever buys it, unless they live in IL, is taking a chance.

Having said that, I'd love to have it. (But not necessarily at that price). I have a feeling his reserve is closer to $12K than $9K.

I highly doubt he went to the trouble to get it EPA/DOT certified -- big $$$ for a non-compliant vehicle, so he must've snuck it in somehow. Very curious I'd say. Caveat Emptor to anyone who buys it.
