The engine tins are missing in the photo... those will cost you a small fortune from the recyclers. When you say that he dismantled it... did he split the case? "Moisture" will kill the oil pump, and potentially cause the crank to have problems. The heads can always be rebuilt and are worth some cash. The chain boxes, and many other parts are magnesium. If everything is really apart you can look and see how bad the magnesium maggots have taken over. Otherwise plan on having to replace some pricey parts even if you get them secondhand.
