All a balancing act.

Spoke to these people today with regards to getting the ol' A7 crank balanced. The fact that it's a low compression, long stroke, single carbed touring motor that is over sixty years old may make it seem an extravagance, however there are a couple of reasons behind it.
A few of my pals have had their T120/140 Bonnie cranks done in the last couple of years and the transformation is noticeable to say the very least, certainly don't try to shake themselves to bits any more.
Secondly, I don't really want to see the crank again once the cases are buttoned up, so it is a once only deal.
A balanced crank must be a happy crank, and that can only be good for the longevity of the motor, the cycle parts and me I guess.
So it looks like a trip to Swindon in the very near future, look up Stockers we're coming your way.
