Heya guys, I've been scouring the internet and ringing local bike shops and the like but have yet figure out how to proceed. I recently brought an 83 Honda VT250F for a couple hundred, the owner was unable to start it for me but assured me it was a camchain issue and gave me a couple new chains he had laying around. I managed to get it started when I got it home and the noise it was making was alot deeper than the cam chains. I stripped the engine right back, split the block and found the crankshaft was pretty scratched up and the bearings were tiny bits of twisted melted metal. Awesome! : / I figured I'd be able to get the crank linished and a couple new bearings fitted but the bike shops and mechanics I've rang have all pretty much laughed at me, wouldn't touch the crank with a ten foot pole and basically told me to throw the bike out and start again. Literally. So alas, my story continues. I've got a few bikes already so this one is a bit of a project bike so I'm not ready to give up yet. One guy I talked to said I could probably chuck a different engine in there... He had a rebuilt 1990 VTR engine up for grabs, said it was basically the same engine and with a couple mods would probably fit... I've also been told the Spada and Integra engines will also fit. Anyone know for certain what I could fit in instead of the 83 engine?
