Looking for a crankshaft for R51/2

Post by TwoShoes »

Hello and greetings from Canada!

I'm an enthusiast who likes to get old BMW's back on the road and have an opportunity to purchase a "basket case" 1950 R51/2. It is however missing some key elements, the most complex one to find is the crank.

I've heard that there is quite a bit of restoration activity going on here, and am wondering if anyone might have one for sale?
