A few Augusta crankshafts have broken in recent times, so I have asked Phoenix Crankshafts in Slough for a quote for making new ones. A one off would be 2,500, but if six were ordered, the price drops to 2,000 each plus VAT. They would be made exactly like the original and would be nitrided. At the moment, the turn round time is about 5 months. If anyone is interested, please let me know this month.

      Pheonix have made crankshafts for Lambdas and Aprilias. If you had one made, please let me know what you think of it - and their service.

       Regards, John

Phoenix are no longer the only player in town - Doug Kiddie is the only name that comes to mind, but a post on the VSCC site would yeild the others for a short list.

Is there anything about the crankshaft which makes it so expensive? If not, would you like some help in sourcing a better price? I have some connections within the trade that might be able to help.

According to Phoenix, they are not so simple to make as a regular "in line" four, because of the offset of the crank pins. They have got Meadows and Austin Seven cranks down to a very reasonable price, as they are relatively easy. If you can recommend anyone else who could be interested in making them, I would love to know.

Can you send me some pictures and approximate dimensions John? If you can I will see what I can do.
