If that machine was not stored properly it is only worth scrap cost. Rusted armatures, frozen seals, frozen connections etc, etc..
Kill Will !

Its sitting in the back of one of my astro vans taking up space right now. I haven't been slow enough yet to take the time to get rid of it yet. I will probably pay a mechanic to remove the 18 hp Honda engine as its probably the only thing of value on the unit. I am moving forward getting into WDR and will need this astro van for it so it is an issue I will deal with in the next 1-2 months.

Damn after all the money and time you wasted all you will get out of it is a 18 hp engine. I say you donate it to the TMF Hall of Fame so it can be on display for all to see. ;)

Still available, brand new ob thw showroom floor.
I'll take it and I bet I would have that machine running well and making loads of money over the next year. Then, there would be a swelling outcry to bring these machines back. Give me a reasonable price on it and if it is running correctly, I'll buy it.

Back off, Kipp, you desert hippie freak. We can't have this one going into the hands of a pretty boy who has never turned a wrench. Lets see what it can do flanking one of the best that the industry has ever seen.

What a waste ! 6 motors , 1000 psi pump , 2HT propane heater and all the hardware.
See this all the time especially with Vintage motorcycles . Throw it in a tin box . Let it sweat in the warm months then rust away in the cold months.
Poor prep and Laziness not "I don't have the time". Winter months ..last year very was slow.
One more bad decision.

I would not judge another person as lazy.
If Will needed the machine working and wasn't fed up with it, I am guessing he could have it running.
He bought a gas tm and is happy with it. I think the only thing he sees with the Vt is head aches

The machine is fundamentally flawed. The generator built into it creates too much heat and causes premature failure to all the components. It will cause heartbreak to anyone who tries to use it.
