If your current engine runs well, I would fix it. Do a google search for "cracked Ducati crankcase".
Plenty of them out there. Not a terribly difficult or expensive fix. The engine must be dropped either way...

I would NOT ride it another mile as-is.

The engine runs great - pulled for 1100 as you said.
I will most likely buy this from you. I just need a few days.

It runs good. My current thought is buy fch99's engine and swap it with mine. Then have the crack welded and sell it for somewhere in the 200-300 range.

Sounds like a good plan. You'll have a like new engine, and some cash to offset the price of the engine.

Don't ride it for damn sure. Easiest option would be buy the motor and swap. Either route, check your mount bolt torque from time to time. It will help prevent that in the future. Nichols machine and TPO parts carry stronger replacements as well.
