Um, it's a very relevant question. How do you not see that? And I'm not "trolling" your thread for "personal nosiness". I was generally interested in a possible purchase of the crank. Seeing as how I just spun a rod bearing and fucked up mine, this seemed like a possibly good purchase to get my bike repaired and back on the road.
But since you can't even answer a simple RELEVANT
question regarding the condition of the motor it came out of, you're only hurting yourself and your sale here. Why is the crank out of the bike? Was it wrecked and this is the only salvageable part? Did the chain come off and put a hole in the casing? Did the motor drop a valve? Did it burn a piston? Did it spin a bearing? Was it using race gas, nitrous, etc? People don't come on here and post a for-sale ad with just a crankshaft that has been taken out of a perfectly good motor. The motor would be worth more as a complete running package. So the question as to why it was out of the motor would be a valid, relevant question to help make an informed decision about purchasing your part. The crankshaft could be bent, scored, etc from any of the above scenarios. I was asking to figure out why you were selling it and what the condition of it was. My bearing spun just off idle and ruined one crank journal, a connecting rod, oil pump, and possibly bent the crank. I don't give a shit about having your machinist check it, or the fact that you say "it's fine", or the fact that there's some remote possibility that PayPal would side with me as a buyer and "light your ass up" if I could prove you sold me a bad part weeks from now after it's in the bike and knocking. Get real dude.
If you can't even be straight-forward and answer a simple without being evasive or spending more time typing a diatribe about why you don't have to answer the question and it's relevance, then you're just showing your ass as a poor seller. It's been over a month since you posted this ad and I asked the question. And there's still no freakin' answer to my very relevant
question. I was posting the question as a buyer, not as some unprofessional Moderator cluttering up your post. But, um, so how do I say this.....I won't be buying it from you at this point. I think it's shady and you're not someone I'd feel comfortable buying from.
BTW, my crank is at American Performance Engineering (APE) getting the number 1 journal repaired and the crank nitrided, lighted, and balanced instead of buying this one since you couldn't answer my question in a timely manner. Glad I went that route.
