Feeler: SP2 motor - FS or part out

Testing the waters for interest. I have a 2004 motor with at least 1 cracked head due to winter storage with water wetter. I pulled both heads and found one cracked. It is from my salvage title track bike which read ~10,500 miles when it was removed this winter. I have owned the bike for 3 years and talked to 2 previous owners. I believe miles to be approximately accurate other than gearing, but I don't know that 100% as the salvage title shows 1 mile.

Is anyone interested in a project as-is including 2 new Head Gaskets? Or anyone interested in several big parts to justify me breaking it down myself? Located near Grand Rapids, MI and would prefer to help with delivery rather than mess with shipping, but I will check on shipping, if necessary. - Tyler
