Anyone have a Crankshaft and Rods?

Tore my engine completely down. Found my one rod was missing it's collars where it attaches to the crankshaft, dissassembled, and found both rods were scored severly, as was the crankshaft. See my post "Engine Won't Turn" for pictures. Anyone have a Crankshaft and Rods they are looking to get rid of? Thanks!!

Have two rods but not the crankshaft.

Full disclosure: I blew up my engine. One cylinder broken, one rod destroyed. Was going to rebuild, but found further damage. Had already bought a replacement rod.

So I have a new/used rod, and an old rod that sustained no damage. However, the crankshaft - from what others have told me - is likely damaged so you probably don't want that. So let's go $75 for the rods and I'll figure out shipping if you're interested.

DaveT319 - Thanks for the reply. I am heading next week to go pick up a whole engine. I lucked out. Corbins is parting out a bike, and she lives up the road from me. So I contacted her, and I am getting the engine out of it. Upgrading from a 700 to 750. If it turns out I will need those rods after all, I will shoot you a PM. Thanks again!!

If you don't need them, I'm going to offer them to another guy here looking for a rod (and other parts).
