stuck crank?

Hi friends,

I was riding to work today a little lean, when i thought i had seized. striped down the top end, the jug came off the piston smoothly. it turned out that the crank had locked up. a strong, turn of the fly wheel got it moving fine, but every 6- 10 turns of the flywheel, i get a little resistance.

anyone have any idea what happened?

Why don't no one say what kind of bike, car, truck, rocket-ship whatever they're riding and expect us just to guess.

Hopefully it's just the bearings that go on the crank not the big end of the crank inside needle bearings .

damn, i was really hoping to finish out the season and then do a tear down over the winter. I may throw the stock kit back on and try and push through for another month.

Sounds like it's done no matter what kit you put on it.
