The way old RB S7 europa had a head like that too. It is an RB but that carb probably came off another motor because RB's (offroad) have had plastic carb bodies for a long time. Hard to tell how many gallons thru it but when it was new the top of that head was black like the rest of it.

Ya, there is a date scribed on the edge of the motor mount flanges. That will tell you exactly when they built the crank case.

maybe 15 or 20 bucks for part thats about it. most people dont buy used motors because they really know what the temps have been on the motor and how many gals of fuel have been though it. people always say about 1/2 a gal to a gal has been though the motor.

you may get more than that at the track, if sombody thinks it is a good engine plus with the pipe and clutch i was thinking 100$ if your lucky.....but online it would be hard to sell like losiracer mentioned above.....
