Thanks for confirming that Leon, am a a lot happier now I know I donít have to buy new rims.

When I said I have 2 RT,s , well I sort of have 3 but an making one into a wedge tank. I have been looking for ages for a tank to no avail but found a rusted out one at a swap a month ago. Made an excellent pattern.
So thatís what todayís project was in the shed.. make a wedge tank. I only have to tail cap to go.

Ok, rims are westwood shaped, are definitely 20Ē with a width of 2Ē.
Going to order some 24 x 2 1/4 f see how I go.

For sale.. 26 x 3 BE tyres   :D

So what you are saying Leon is that 24Ē tyres will fit on the same size rims that also take 26Ē?

Ok guys, I am having a little trouble getting the tyres not to rub on the guards. I have just about fixed this problem but double checking what other guys with RT,s have for tyres on their bikes?

Other guys I have spoken to all are running 26 x 3 front & rear, books I have read have said the same & then I find one book that says 24 x 2 1/2.

Hi Rob, I donít know where you live but in Aust pre 1930 lights were an optional extra. A pic of the maggy setup would be nice.

It's usually helpful if you say what parts you are after. After all, we can see your photo is of the engine actually running.

Iím glad I wasnít the only one that noticed it. If the engine is running why do you need parts?

The top lever ones are BSA rigid single around 48-54 350 and 500/600

Thatís it John. Normally found on B31/33 models

If all you need is a tank to finish a bike project then fit an Indian made one until you find an original... if thatís what you want.

Sorry, yes. Theyíre for a BSA.
 The more I look at parts I have, the more Iím starting  to think one end plate is for the long gear lever for round tanks & the other is a hand change?
