British Bikes / 8 Tooth sprocket ?
« on: March 30, 2018, 03:31:27 AM »
Any clues ? ........

Ive got an 8 Tooth sprocket Im wondering what it comes off

it has a taper from 1/2" to .450"  , fits splitdorf shaft so 6 degree
its 3/8 wide
tip to tip 1-1/2" across
has a key 3/32 wide
my guess 1/2 centre to centre chain

most american magnetos are gear drive and generators are belt and pulley .
maybe this is AJS , Matchless ?

cheers

British Bikes / Re: Triumph model ?
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:20:20 PM »

this is June and Jackie in the usa so its an export model . 
looking at tank logo with 4 stripes that would make it 1950 and rigid frame up to 1953 .

well spotted ... I can just see the tank rack 

2 saddle seats , both sprung I guess
fork tins have chrome ring at front gaurd level
obviously has a side stand aswell as rear stand
remembering this is marlon brando era "wild ones" movie so Id say americans were buying triumphs like crazy

Ive just been reading about the T6 thunderbird 1950 intro so yes that is a possibility too .
so ... polychromatic blue or marroon paint ...
Im searching site and net for colours at the time

American Bikes / Indian Scout rake angle ?????
« on: March 17, 2015, 02:48:37 AM »
Does any one know the correct rake for an early scout frame ?

I have asked tony leenes , george yarocki , ken fox, jurgen hecker , moen , walkers , j parker , jurgen sundberg .... list goes on
it appears no one knows
I measure 23* but thats on a bent frame . I need to make a frame jig . George yarocki 101 frame diagram shows rake as 30* and down tubes 15* , the top tube is on a 5* slope .

if the neck were reset so the top tube was level then rake would be 25* and down tubes would be 20*

cheers
