    Richard at Wasco wants me to send him the cradle and swing arm, along with the frame.

    He must have a set of crankcases then or a jig to take the place of the cases

    He says he does a lot of Norton frames, rides them, owns them.

    I would send the article to your man at Wasco. If he can hold the tolerances in the article I’d go with him.

    I can vouch for the Commandos. He’s just got another one when we were there.

    Good to hear - in the UK the price is pretty reasonable too. Out of curiosity, was it enamelled or powder coated?

    AN salesperson told me they were powder coated.

    The exchange on the British Pound is 1.22:1. Which is lower than it has been in a long time if ever. Did they give you any idea of what it might cost to ship it?

    I recently purchased a crankshaft for a Perkins diesel out of England and to my amazement they shipped it to Alaska via UPS for about a hundred USD. I can't get stuff from Seattle via UPS for a hundred bucks. So I don't know how the international rates work but it was cheap. Five days from UK to Alaska.
