The rod on my crank seems to be seized to the crank. I have it soaking in some penetrating oil, but should I scrap it or is it salvageable?

scrap it. Cranks are cheap enough.


If you have time to go pick it up in person, this is in Chicago....

but if you're going to have to have it shipped to you, my bet is this will get there faster. It's cheaper too.

SW don't let people pick stuff up in person anymore. (if they have stuff going across town to the showroom you could prob do it tough)

Hey KREEPY, you never got back to me about if you need that carb or not.

figures. i hate dealing with them anyways.

order online with scooter mercato and you'll be set. If you're doing a full rebuild, they have packages you can buy that include all of your seals and bearings, crank and top end (if you want). I did the "seals, bearings and gaskets" kit for my sprint, because I was buying a performance crank and a kit.

I am saving my old cranks so that when I get enough I'll weld them together and make a neat post to mount my mail box. Almost there!

My brother used to use his scrapped motorcycle cranks to anchor the end of his catfish trot lines.
