Got this Medallion recently that was supposed to be mint NIB...

Well, turns out the box liner was missing AND someone had scribbled a number on the crankcase Mad

Well, the seller would not refund my money, so I tried to make the best of it. After some careful sanding, first with 400, then 800 grit wet-dry, and some elbow grease with polishing compound I got the crankcase restored. A lot of work but certainly worth it, don't you think! While I was at it, I tossed the wimpy two-slit thick wall cylinder and replaced it with a used but very good step-style #2 cylinder. Here is the end result, enjoy!

I hope you like it. There's no better way to start off the month of April than fixing up a little Medallion!

If you have the original, signed in blood, type written on IBM selectric, notice of limited edition paper....I would be willing to offer you $ 789.99 for that engine case Only.... ( I collect obscure engine cases)

I have tried a few times to etch the proper number to my NOS medallions but need at least one good example

Beautiful work Kari!
You should apply your talents to something more substantial
than a mediocre old Medallion. Rolling Eyes

I'll be happy to trade that engine for a couple of tickets. I only ask you include the box and all paperwork that came with it. Very Happy
