Well i paid 400 dollars for my 1990 Indy 500 SKS. That doesnt sound too bad, but personally I would pass. I can find that year of indys all the time around me for that price, that work fine.

"in very good condition" besides the rings... Well then explain the tape all over the seat?
I wouldn't even bother with this one. Have you ever tried putting the monoblock XLT top end back together? It's a bitch. You're trying to line up one cylinder block and get all three pistons in there and have to have the rings compressed to do it.

I've rebuilt a top end on an XLT monoblock, it sucked because I did it in the sled.. This is why he's selling the sled so cheap.

The ring compression ain't that difficult, just use radiator hose clamps..

However, if he admits that it needs rings and a seat, I suspect that it's also not maintained in other areas, and will need lots of other stuff like a track, sliders and shocks. Unless you plan on going through it and fixing a lot of stuff, I'd stay away.

also if it needs rings, how do you think the cylinder walls are? might need to be honed or bored out. offer him maybe 200 or something if you really want it or 250

exactly^
how does he know that it needs rings if the motor is all in one piece still? You never know what you'll find once you tear into it, It most likely needs a lot more than just rings
