Default Dax engine replaced

I bought a Dax F80 engine for my second build a Electra Coaster bike. After starting to break in the engine it was noted that it had a bad vibration in it no matter what speed it was running. I took the bike down to Jim at Creative Engineering to see what he thought after rideing it. We tryed every thing that might cause the vibration but no luck. It was decided that the engine was put togeather with a bent crankshaft. I called Dax and told him what we had tryed and thought that the crankshaft was bent. Duane said to box it up and send it back for a replacement. It took a little while but the new engine has arrived and is now going through a easy break end. Sofar it has more power and only a small amount of vibration. Duane did what he says he will do and delivered. Here is some pictures of the bike now.
