The crankshaft, often called the crank, is the part of an engine which translates reciprocating linear piston motion into rotation.

For the Puch E50, there are several stock and aftermarket crankshafts available.

Stock Crank

This is the standard crank that came in E50s, pre 1986. Has a brass bushing on the connecting rod.
