Got it on eBay for 929$, came off an 1100 with a cpl thousand miles. First one I could find. Another member was on his way to buy it in Houston and I bought 2 hours before he got there.

Ahh, more expensive than I thought it'd be. Good for you, though.

What's the price diff between a 696 and 796 new? For that kind of money it seems like just buying a 796 instead of modding a 696 is the better value.

It is the better value, Krafty has another thread where it was stated that he just wanted to do it because he liked the 696 enough to want to keep it rather than swap it out.

That first grand is only the swingarm and bits, doesn't come close to the $1,000-2,000 for wheels and tires.

Yes, this is just a project for me, something fun and keeps me busy. I have all my stock parts from aftermarket upgrades and I'm keeping all my original parts from the swap to slowly build another bike from pieces over time. After this project is complete, I may look into getting an 1100 engine into it If you watch for deals it's not that bad. I picked up a mint condition used rear Marchesini for 315$, so everything needed for the swap was ~ 1500$ total. I'm looking around for a good deal on front wheel now, add a couple used 796/1100 rotors and 796/1100 impulse wheel for the ABS and the front can be done for 500 - 600$ depending or the wheel price. That's well worth it for the experience and knowledge gained!
