916/996 motor conversion

Hey i'm new to the Ducati scene but i was hoping someone could help me out with this. I was looking at a 1995 916 with the 996 conversion and was curious if this is a common thing and what are some potential dangers to the bike if you do this?

I'd post the link to craigslist but dont want to get in trouble so its a 1995 Ducati 916 with a 2000 996 motor conversion. seller didnt indicate miles

(I was looking at a 748 but the guy sold it on my way to his place)

Not even close to that money buddy IMHO. Too many bells ring looking at that pic. Plenty of solid bikes around for that money. Cheers.

engine swap is totally acceptable by itself but as mentioned above that bike has almost every part painted or replaced including the frame and lost its original looks. Now this also may not be a red flag but definitely brings up questions as to why these changes were done.

Looks more like a 2000 996 with a 95 conversion frame.
