Does anyone have the parts that Gus has mentioned available to donate, so we can start building the project engine?

If so, post up here and I'll get the shipping info for you. If we can't get them, they will have to be purchased.... but I'm a little worried about the bearings.... :shock:

Those bearings are made of unobtainum. I bought a set of cases to get some that were usable one time. So I'm patiently waiting on Gus to have some made up.

my main guy Eddie has not been available for some reason, my buddy e-mails him often also uses him as a language expert when overseas I will ask him tomorrow whats up with that, he asked me how many I wanted and when he was here and I told him 100 of each and he looked at me and said you mean a thousand right? meaning 100 is not enough but who knows, love those minumum quanities.

Gus, what are the specs/dimensions/class on the bearings that have been ever so sought after. I've been in manufacturing for over 30 years and have had some NLA bearings made locally for out dated equipment. Specs provided I could check my sources for lead times and pricing.

Joe has the forks and the shaft. $150.00 for all if we need them. Let me know and I'll pull the trigger. Or if we just need the shaft, then I'll have to get back with him.

just the bearings, I have 4 shift drums with forks and shafts to match, I am trying to make the Rick Lance ride and if nothing turns up I will get with him, he probably has more 500 parts than Yamaha has.
