The bike is still in the shed so I can't get a pic now but I'll post one when I can get over there. I may be mistaken about the cracks I saw on ebay--could just be bad pictures.
As far as this crack, the Old Man says it was caused when someone (not him) tried to replace a stud and somehow cracked the case right at the cam bearing.
