What I thought would be a $500 crank rebuild turned into I think $225 bearing replacement and truing. I don't have his contact info handy, but his business name is Vintage Specialties. Crank work and boring are the only things I don't do myself on the RD. For what it costs to have an expert do it, I can't see why one wouldn't go that way.

Send it to Lyn. Excellent guy.
