So that's how you remove the engine. Been doing it wrong all these years. :whistle:
Yep, good deal.

I have to ask myself, if was running so great, why chop it out like that?

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe he's really lazy and his sawzall was the closest tool.

Probably cause it is difficult to pull the motor with the heads attached and he did not want to take the motor apart. Or crashed bike / damaged frame or maybe he works at one of those used car part junkyards.

untitled frames to resellers are a burden, so probably wasn't worth keeping.  :umm:
