I wouldn't mind hearing his side either. I'm not trying to disparage him unfairly, but as he has a business dealing in vintage motorcycles, I think it's only fair to give my experience. Unfortunately, abandoning this project is my only recourse. I paid a substantial sum, the value of a drivable machine, and I simply can't afford a full restoration. It sounds like the person to whom I'm selling to has the money to devote to this bike, so while I'm disappointed that I won't get to enjoy riding it, I'm at least happy to know that it won't remain a pile of parts.

i read this with great interest.while not exactly the same bike my '54 b33 suffered from similar maladies including that HORRIBLE mag dyno registering system. thousand i spent and to be sure there is nothing that CANT BE FIXED, it takes heaps of cash and lots of ingenuity. after all that i spent and repaired i didnt like riding it all. and didnt shed a tear when i sold it. as to the case.before you get carried away spending any more money, break it down to bare cases and check the main bearing fit in the cases carefully check for cracks around the main bearing recesses in the case halves and note if there are any punch marks around the bearing recesses (to tighten up a wallowed out bearing bore) if you find any of the above, stop and reread this post. also check and evaluate the the oil pump drive bore for excessive wear,it can wear so bad that the oil pump drive barely meshes. please dont ask how i know this. in my case id have been better off buying a complete ABSAF version and aside from the head and assorted other parts JUNKING THE REST.i dont write this to rain on your parade or cause pain its just i have been down this road.by the way my seller was from arizona as well. and have you at least "eye balled" the frame? if you are interested i dont enjoy telling the aforementioned story,
