Title: Faulty alloy mag pinions on evilbay!!!
Post by: MG on 11.02. 2011 16:54
Watch out chaps!

There's a guy on ebay (goldtop78) selling these alloy pinions for BSA A10 AAUs:

http://cgi.ebay.at/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190494629845 (http://cgi.ebay.at/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190494629845)

Contrary to better knowledge and feeling I bought one, only to find that it is too narrow (about 2/3 of the original width) and has 50 teeth, instead of 44!!!
I will contact the seller to see what he says, but be warned not to buy that crap!!!

Seller claims he unintentionally sent a wrong one, and all the others he was selling were okay.

I can't control that, so up to you to decide.

There's a difference between "crap" and mistakenly sending you a Triumph pinion.

Not if it (and several others with identical pictures) are advertised for "BSA A10" - see link.
Item description for one now changed to "Triumph A10" after my complaint.

Anyway, like I said before, you decide.

It's strange.

If he sends out 50 tooth wheels for a 44 tooth application he'll get them all back.
