Question ISO: MC Engine for Engineering Students

I was recently contacted by the Engineering Design program at my local High School, hoping that I could help them out with a running motorcycle engine for one of their classroom projects. As much as I am willing and would like to give them an engine (I have several), I do not have any that are suitable for what they are looking for. They are NOT an auto mechanics class looking to get an engine running, but engineering students looking to make that engine work in their project. They need a running engine (and associated bits to make it run, coils, ECU, wiring, carbs, etc) with instrument cluster, that they can just drop into their project. Ideally I think they would love a Japanese 600cc, but realistically anything would probably do. I personally think simple would be better (air-cooled rather than liquid cooled), but will take what we can get. I'm looking for free, but if free isn't possible, I would consider buying the whole bike (crashed bike, parts bike, no title, whatever) if I can get it cheap enough, and donating the engine to them. Let me know what you have. I'm willing to transport. Or if you would rather deal with them directly, I can put you in contact with the Engineering Class and/or Instructor.

TTTom: If you haven't already, might want to cross-post this on the Junkies site. Lots of wrecked bikes in the back of garages, and Brandon may have a line on one for ya as well.
