Can't be re-sleeved, they didn't have sleeves.
LASCO makes one for the 45 W motor that will fit, get it from Eastern.
They will also take a really big oversize, like a Norton Atlas piston.
Be careful not to determine the bore size from the existing piston - many were bored to fit Scout.

Call Bill at Bore-Tech. He sleeves K models for Perry Finks race engines. Bill is used to working with rare or one of a kind motor parts.
For the best deal on bike parts, call Calif Phil

Right, any cylinder can be sleeved (now - everybody!).
It can't be re-sleeved if it never had sleeves.

We've sleeved Ni-Cad plated bores back to a cast iron liner, in non-HD application.
Old worn, overbored 74" FL's never had a sleeve, sleeved them.
900cc XL's that needed to come back to OE bores, were not sleeve-equipped, did them too.

So apparently only evos and twinks can be "resleeved" ...I had better tell my motor guy that he has been "sleeving" cylinders all these years....I prefer to call them Liners,,But I guess I'm just being anal :hyst:
So yeah LA Sleeve has sleeves ,,liners,, pieces of fancy pipe for almost every engine in the world..
