Impressive Desctruction

I bought a bike from the classifieds and here was what I found inside. It's pretty impressive. Gotta go buy a jug, piston, and head tonight on the interweb. I wanna get it running by next week.

Yep, a few of them.......

I was impressed it destroyed the head and piston, but the bottom end was untouched. Love that aluminum V/S steel.... Fortunately it didn't get to the other side.
