Hi frank! Sorry for the very late reply to this. I know the engine is salvageable but it’ll need a new crank as the one end is broken off on the clutch side. And wasn’t too sure how much of a bore out the cylinder would need to be repaired and at which point I could no longer get a piston at.
I have a bit of engine rebuild knowledge. Mostly from small block dodges tbh. I did rebuild a old Peugeot 103 motor that ran once I put it back together. But I don’t count that really as too much knowledge.
The underlining issue to be frank is my wife and I only recently got married and as much as she loves the Batavus Starflite I own she’s not super thrilled with the amount I spend on the bike projects. As a couple we also have a 70’s Goldwing and pair of cb750s in there that I’m trying to thin out.
