You never know, though.....it may have been a wrecked Paso with a damaged engine and this was the easiest and cheapest way to bring it back to life.......with a transplanted heart. I think I would have used a different engine than a Virago, though. :lol:

it says it had a salvage title, however this must be the only Paso with Kardan drive. (fully suspended drive)

With that engine, the Paso would go faster than the flying carpet :lol: :lol: :lol: .

However, fill up the oil :-P :-P :-P !!!!

Thats how I picked it up in November. It came from a wrecked '99 ST4, and I'd assume the lost oil wound up on the side of the road or in a ditch somewhere. I've seen all the other parts that were on that bike. It is surprising that the engine looks flawless.
