Hello, I have a buddy with a few whizzer crankshafts that need turning. Is there a shop anyone knows of that turns these small crankshafts? Also does anyone know where to buy a mini crankshaft turning lathe? My buddy is a machinist since the mid 70's and specializes in early 750 Hondas. He used to know of a gentleman in the Oregon region but I have not been able to track him down. I also figure if a small cranlshaft lathe can be purchased he would be capable of running it. Thanks.

Thanks for the replies. I talked with Frank today ( the machinist with the whizzers). He told me back in the 80's or early 90's there was a shop in Oregon. He remembers the gentleman who ran it as maybe Petitte? The shop was called Speedway Motors. They specilized in small engine repair - like scooters, cushmans and whizzers. He does not know if someone else has since taken over. Pettite was in a mobility device back then - so maybe no longer around? I only mention this toward further info about this subject.
