Hi. I'm looking at the photos posted on your web site. Are the photos of the engine during the build, or is that as-is today? I ask because I notice no fire sleeves on the fuel hoses (nor any others) and the oil line from the gear box is missing a clamp.

Does it have the Dynon 2020 GPS and is it ADS-B out compliant?

Nice looking airplane, should be a good deal if everything checks out.

In the photos, it appears the engine is in the process of the flywheel and drive spider upgrade as the GB bolts are not tightened and the "damper" is still taped together. I also noted the worm drive clamp on the left side radiator outlet hose and the rubber hose vs silicone hose everywhere else. The fuel side also has worm drive clamps on the 40 psi fuel hoses and the brake fluid reservoir is not mounted on the firewall. If the plane is flying, I am sure all that would be corrected.

The engine information link is for the Viking 130, the Viking 110 uses the typical 40 psi fuel injection not GDI as described. The 110 GB also uses two gears, not three (left turning prop). I am a bit surprised at the 760 lb empty weight, that is 20-30 lbs lighter than most Viking RV-12 numbers I have seen. Mine came in at a rather fat 830 lbs.
