Parting out '95 engine

As some of you may have seen in this thread here, I blew up the front cylinder of my '95 Vulcan. It had just over 42K miles when it gave out. As a result, I'm going to be getting an entire used engine and therefore will be parting out the good parts of this one.

Parts that are known to be no good:
- Right side case (damage to oil line and an internal "shelf")
- Front head (exhaust valves got slammed by the piston, bent and jammed against the head)
- Rear head (there's a hole where the spark plug sleeve goes that was causing an oil leak, was already planning to replace that head before the engine blew)
- Rear exhaust manifold (one of the bolts to connect the exhaust pipe had previously broken off)
- Cams (excessive wear on the teeth of the gears)
- Crank shaft (damaged from when the rod broke)

I had already purchased a used front cylinder, piston, and rod. I got them for a pretty good price, and all I want is my money back on that purchase since I never installed them. Therefore, the cylinder and piston together (from an '01) will be $56.24 + shipping, and the rod **is sold**.

Everything else in the engine should still be good. I have not closely examined all the remaining parts, but a cursory inspection saw no damage.

Parts such as the stator and rear bevel case are not included as yet, as I may need them when I get a used engine. Basically any external parts that may not be included with another engine. If they are not needed, I will update this thread at that time. The stator I plan to keep no matter what since it's only 2 years old.

I'm not going to list the prices for every individual part here, the list would be too long. Instead, I figure to sell everything for 25% of what the price is on bikebandit.com.

So if you want something, let me know either in this thread or through PM. I will then examine the part(s) more closely and let you know if it seems to be good enough to sell, after which I will clean it and ship it. Shipping will either be USPS Priority Mail or UPS, whichever is cheaper. I will keep a running tally in this post of the parts that have already sold.

Have at it!

Parts already sold:
-Side oil drain plug
-2 Connecting rods
-Shift tie rod

No one needs any engine parts? I'll be putting whatever is good up on eBay soon, wanted to give you all first crack at them.
