Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.
It doesn't matter where the parts come from. I simply like the look of the HD BT gearbox.
Of course it has no advantages compared with a "modern" lightweight brit box. But these arn't to my taste.
I've paid an used adjustable transmission plate and the fabrication of the pulley mount to fit the 45 sprocket shaft. The rest I tried to build by myself.
I think this is not much more than you would pay for an english assembly.
Last BSA gearbox I bought cost me 50GBP on ebay and it cost about the same again in bearings to recondition. I bought a Norton gearbox in very good shape and a clutch to match for around 400 GBP; for an HD BT unit you can multiply that by at least 5, and I don't remember when I last saw saw one offered at all.
WE ARE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE OUR NEW 45 FRAME THAT WILL ACCOMODATE A BIG TWIN 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION. THE NECK IS 30 DEGREE AND WE DO HAVE A BELT DRIVE SYSTEM FOR THE TRANSMISSION AND MOTOR. WE ALSO HAVE A SPECIAL MOTOR SPROCKET THAT HARLEY MANUFACTURED FOR DAYTONA RACERS THAT WAS MADE TO WORK WITH A 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION. WE CAN SUPPLY A 65-69 TRANSMISSION THAT WILL ACCOMODATE AN ELECTRIC START TRANSMISSION. TO DO AN ELECTRIC START TRANSMISSION THE MOTOR SPROCKET WOULD HAVE TO BE ALTERED AND OFF SET 3/8 OF AN INCH. WE ARE PLAYING AROUND WITH THE ELECTRIC START PROJECT AND YOU MAY E-MAIL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. WE ARE PRESENTLY BUIDING A 45 MOTOR WITH A K MODEL TOP END THAT WILL FIT INTO THIS FRAME. THE FRAME IS NOT SET UP FOR THE KICK STAND BRACKET OR FORWARD CONTROL BRACKETS WHICH YOU CAN FAB. THE REAR WHEEL IS SET UP FOR A 73 UP DISC WHEEL. THE NECK IS SET UP FOR A ONE INCH SPRINGER OR GLIDE. THIS AUCTION WILL INCLUDE THE FRAME, AND A COMPLETE REBUILT 1941 45 MOTOR, COMPLETE WITH AUTOMATIC ADVANCE DISTRIBUTOR, CHROME VALVE COVERS. NO WELDS OR REPAIRS TO ENGINE CASES OR HEADS.
