Crank - Got that sent off today to Vintage Specialties. Lyn gave me the heads up that it fits in a medium size flat-rate USPS box and ships for $11.75.

Also figured out how the crank got bent on the stator side - take a look at the back of the rotor and the giant chisel marks.

BTW, the back rotor (the piece with the all the marks) is loose and can rotate pretty easily. I assume it's not supposed to be able to do that?

Compare this with the image above.

Cylinders - spoke to Bill at Bore Tech about the getting them bored and honed. $65/cyl, seems pretty reasonable? He suggested adding .50mm to the bore size (I measure 50.05mm) and ordering the appropriate pistons. That would put me at 2nd-over. He also suggested ordering the pistons and sending them to him along with the jugs. Doesn't seem to be as much out there for the 250 as there is for the 350, but there are some available from HVC Cycle.

Other fun stuff - cleaned up the heads.

Started making a list as all the gaskets, seals and screws will need to be ordered and I don't want to forget anything.
