first off is it the 1.0 or 2.0 version that he is selling? if it's the 1.0 then no, not good deal cus you can find those brand new now for under $400. As for the engine, being that he only paid $130 for it and i've never heard of that engine before, the reliability, tuneability, and durability comes into question. i've seen good condition roller on ebay sell for around $200-300.

Well Amain has the kit version of the 8ight on sale for $350 before any discount. That's a good deal there if you ask me. And for engines you can find a better more reliable engine in Amain for under $200.
