I asked around on the /2 mailing list and got a few suggestions. I can either buy a crank balancing stand and a big hammer and true the crank myself, or I can do it right and send it off for a proper rebuild. Since the crank is already borderline in a couple of other areas I'm going to send it out. It's the core piece of the engine and if I'm going to rebuild this thing right I need to get the crank right. Either way I've got to take the engine apart again, which I might start on today.

What's the turnaround time? Will it keep you from working on any other aspects of the restoration?

Looking at the white stuff in my driveway, at least it's a good time of the year to have the part away.

Probably a couple of weeks or so. So far I've spent more time than that ignoring the engine while being mopey about the flywheel runout ;)

I've also got the cylinders to deal with so I've got work to do while I wait.

I hope to have the bike running again by late spring. Of course I've still got the transmission and final drive to deal with before then.
