Desperately need a 93.98 Nikasil cylinder HELP!!

My project has come to a stand still as I am having tons of trouble finding a single 93.98 nikasil cylinder for my 81 R100. If anyone on here has one laying around or would know someone who has one please let me know, thanks for the help.

Mellineum Technolies can apply nickasil to your exact specifications. Even repair deep gouges in the cylinder wall. I chose this option for my R80G/S as I wanted tolerances to be back to original spec. About $450 ($488 I rechecked) for the pair.

See when I called they told me $600 for the pair plus shipping so I figured it wasn't even worth it. But I also didn't think it would be this hard to find a replacement ! I messaged the Craigslist guy so I hope he can help me out! Thanks for the help guys I may give mellinium a call back

Most cylinders and pistons are dealt in sets of pistons with the cylinder. Plus they usually go as a pair. So not too many single cylinders around I have always thought. You might get lucky.

Wish I was in Chicago. Ask that guy if he wants to do any shipping? What are prices like? For the right price somebody may be willing to buy the lot. (unfortunately not me but I think there are people that will, for the right price)

$600...damn I just had mine done in August for $488 and $60 was to repair a couple of nicks. I can't believe they went up THAT MUCH!!!! There are other companies that do nickasil coatings too. I ended up getting new pistons which were only available in ONE size, with recoating I was able to size the cylinder to original specs!!!! This was of the utmost importance to me. I tied to use the original pistons but they were out of spec.


this is what I went through.

This is my cylinder, I know if I put it back like this It will end up chipping awAy which will lead to oil leaking and eventually my new valves will get torched. I've got a lot of money into this build so I figure every issue must be addressed.
