That's the engine I was talking about. It's from an Italian import. The vendor says it's from a 1993 bike but states it's an RD04 - must be talking about the engine number I would have thought. Anyway, there's no throttle position sensor on the carbs, so it would have to be an early one. I'm wondering if the gold cases are something the Italian market got and we didn't...?
I've also been offered a 1998 engine with 8200 miles on it and a three month warranty up at MT Motorcycles at Doncaster - not sure how much they want for it yet.
Calipers are maybe more of a problem at the moment - even more dust seal showing now - the alloy has the consistency of bread!
