Thanks! Thought about that or using it on a different Trike but the Engine itself was no good, Sat too long with no oil in it (condensation over 10+ years).. Front Calipers stuck hard too. Had to take them off just to get it roll on the Trailer. So I'll be rebuilding those too!. Im amazed the Forks cleaned up as nice as they did.. PS: This is my other Trike built last year.. VW and Kawasaki KZ440

I'm assuming the engine is set up solid, likely the rings are stuck to the cylinder walls.

Have you thought of pouring a couple gallons of Diesel Fuel/ATF mix into the crankcase and some into the cylinders to see if you can free up the internals? The guts of the 1100 engines are pretty robust, if you can get it to start to move with a wrench on the crank bolt you might be able to free up a stuck engine and resurrect it....
