Any idea when the 4.5" stroke might be available? And a bump for a forged piece made in the U.S.A.

After further discussion with my rep at Lunati, it appears the cranks are machined in the USA from foreign forgings. No word on when a 4.500 crank will be available.

My rep at Lunati told me there was a legthy review of forgings from several suppliers. I think Lunati has a real eye on quality now that they're independantly owned again. I would expect the new cranks to be right up there with the best available.
