Mystery Husaberg Engine?? (older 501)

So I was browsing around for Husaberg stuff and found this engine for sale.
The guy doesn't really know what it is other than a 6 speed 501 engine.

Thing is I have a 98 501 that needs a rebuild, but this seems like a possibly better option. He claims the engine is freshly rebuilt, but I can't help but notice a couple obvious things...

All the rough casting typically on these engines is smoothed over. The valve covers and clutch cover do not say Husaberg. WTF??

Is this some one-off race engine? He has part numbers listed. They are:

200018 502CC 1010403 220008 65432N1 220004

Can someone PLEASE possibly help me identify this engine, it's origins and any other info?

Thanks in advance.

Here are pictures:

Doesn't 96 have an oil filter?

What is the threaded cap right behind the cylinder?

Re: Mystery Husaberg Engine?? (older 501)

strange the way it is so polished, might make you wonder if they spent that much time on how it looks what they did to the inside, although, maybe they just wanted it to look cool too....... 1997 was the first year with the oil filter, this bike does kinda looks like it has one but cant tell that well, the right side right behind the cylinder has what looks like the filter cap? if two screws hold that cap in then yea i would say it has one, although the water pump cover looks like it is the older style? stator cover also appear one off and different than anything i have ever seen, and the stator wiring leaves the case on the opposite side then my 1997............ weird looking engine

The old oilscreen under the black cap only takes nuts and bolts

Note that my '96 FE600e had an oil filter. There was a factory recall on the rocker arms and other top end components which were addressed by my dealer Bill Woolman.

Are you saying this is a Vertemati engine?

Would you think this engine would hold together well it maintained properly?

Hi

Vertemati is husaberg with some changes, I saw some with different covers and a right hand kick, I'm just saying maybe this has some vertemati covers ???

Check this:

This are high maintenance engines, so they need to have an eye always on top of it.

Re: Mystery Husaberg Engine?? (older 501)

Well I have a 98 FE501 e-start bike that I supermoto'd.
I need to rebuild my engine, but what are all of your opinions on making adapter brackets and mounting this engine in my bike?

I'm maintain meticulously, religious oil changes and tappet adjustments, etc.
