Thanks

Why not just send it to

Why not just send it to Germany where the bikes were built? Hey just a thought.

Thanks for the reply.
Will be visiting UK soon and would like to discuss with overhaul specialist.
Crank is in a bad shape and it may not be worthwhile to overhaul .

If you do get a recommendation please let me know. I have a crank here in the UK that needs work too.

Well you cant just put it in

Well you cant just put it in your carry on suite case and go threw customs anymore. Why dont you take to a good machine shop for an opinion. If its as bad as you say im not sure I would want someone to weld it up grind it down and hope for the best. I have seen them for $1200-1500 USD. What is that 500-600 pounds? If in bad shape it will cost that much to repair......Sorry just thinking out loud, Bill.
Around London maybe your best bet.

R12 Crankshaft

Thanks for your input.
I would tend to agree with you although I have just been through customs etc out of the UK with easily the same weight as a crankshaft in BM spares , no problem .
To overhaul a crankshaft in bad condition is not easy and there is no one in South Africa I would trust to do the job.
