Yep we're all addicted in our heads here.
Look at it this way, your preserving history for future generations.
Awhile back I restored a '67 Honda S90, came out real nice. I sold it a guy with big company, he put on display in the building entrance.

After tearing down the first one.Both are actually 78"s,I find that the first one from New Mexico has a huge crank wobble.
After a bit of research I see these models have the inserts for the main bearings,so I suspect this is the most likely culprit but in any case I would like to address this first. I am wondering has there been any procedure to rectify this weakness? I hate to use my left handed way of dealing with weird issues but if there has been no resolve on these old girls then I will have to line bore them with some big races is my only take on the problem.
Someone please stop me!

Well I guess I am not the only lefty after all.I found an article where another takes exactly the same approach to the insert issue,have a look if you have not seen it before.
