British Bikes / Tank identity ??
« on: June 20, 2018, 06:18:40 AM »
Im trying to identify parts of this bike for an artical Im scratching together .
chassis = 49 - 52- Indian scout , motor = crocker ,  trans = HD predate electra-glide.
fuel tank = looks brit ??
oil tank = brit ??

HD clutch = 37 tooth 2 row that requires 428-2 chain , that requires 2 row motor sprocket for 1" taper motor shaft = pre 1954 HD sprocket  , tin primary case .
trans out put = HD therefore 530 rear chain

usually motor has magneto out front BUT notice there is a tail and head light ?  there fore , there is power or a total loss battery strapped on but not visable thru rear wheel ?? . magneto could be replaced by gen . there was a dizzy also available for there motors , which would need a gen which was driven off stock clutch basket which this is not . it was an autolite clock wise rot.
HD usually had gen off front of motor driven by the timing gears .
motor has 2 separate oil pumps which are the copper pipes up the guts centre .

HD primary has no allowance for dynamo take off drive or pulley
under the tank theres a wire parallel to down tube

front brake lever by his elbow . no shadow of RH lever on tank = no clutch lever therefore LH foot clutch and LH hand change .
bike is resting on the kicker . right above kick spring is where clutch arm is which needs room to move forwards and backwards .
between the blue line , the rear exhaust and above the clutch arm there is a mass fairly well lit but  ....possibly brit dynamo ?    ......more I look its most likely the shifter drum housing / lid
Rear hub =  LH sprocket drum ??  brit equivalents ?
49 scout rear axle is straight dia 1/2-20 , any brit equivalents ?

any ideas or theory , feel free to throw it in the mix , there cant be any wrong answers

British Bikes / 8 Tooth sprocket ?

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 ?

American Bikes / Indian Scout rake angle ?????

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*
