('63 Scat) Ugh, put off the restore to work on other bikes (2yrs). Upon start up I notice that even though its running there is also a LOT of rattling. No power either when I released the clutch. I finally got into the top end today and discovered a disaster. My new piston is missing the front skirt, the back skirt has a crack, the needle bearing in the rod is gone, and my cylinder skirts are now cracked in 3 places. I've since dried my tears and come to terms with the damage. My question is, what are my options at this point with the cylinder?
