Cylinders already been bored, honed and and new piston/rings by the previous owner ;)
Crank shaft should not need touching. The bike was not abused and not ridden much. Dumping so much money into this just is completely unnecessary but I see where you guys get those figures for a "restoration."
I will never, in my life, do a "restoration." I like to make functional rebuilds. If the crankshaft was bent, off center etc...then sure, I'd probably take the measures to remedy that, however, I do not see that being the case at all.
In addition to all that, the clutch plates were replaced and I even have a back up set included in the hand box o' parts.
