Re: Stupidity costs money
Rebuilding is costly, what's the budget? Salvage engines have to have a return policy sold with them, so you don't get stuck with junk. Rebuilding is a loose term that means many things to different people. Unless you have a really good well seasoned machine shop to do all the prep properly and precisely with very expensive equipment, those new parts won't do much. We rebuild other people's rebuilds. It staggers the imagination of what some put together.
Salvage is often the lowest and most reliable cost solution for any old outdated bike not worth more than a few grand, and hopefully, by chance, you found an original that was never messed with. Good luck.
