Welcome to the forum.

You will find just about everything you could ever want on the Forum via the FAQs and technical sections. It makes life a bit easier when searching to use Google and the template "your query site:Bsabantamclub.com " e.g. "fuel mix site:Bsabantamclub.com” you'll get more focused results than using the Forums internal search engine.  If you can't find it in the mountain of info just ask. The members will be only too happy to give advice. It's a good idea to include your location in your profile, as often their will be members local to you who would love to help and see your bike. Also if you join the club this opens other technical info on the forum in the members only area and gets you discount with a multitude of suppliers and businesses.

Have a look in the Products and Services area for recommended, by members not the Club, suppliers.

£60 for a useable crank assembly seems reasonable to me, given that a new con rod and big end is £125 plus fitting.

You could probably get one for that but like sunny says the shafts would probably be bent and the big end would probably be shot .even if they weren't it probably wouldn't be true so I'd maybe lower your expectations a little.😆.Good luck though. What's up with the one in the engine you have?

What's 7/16 in mm again?
