Re: Steel front guard Adelaide

I have reread my add and noticed that I should have put in there that I am wanting to buy the guard and was not just hoping someone would give me a free one. If anyone has a cruiser style guard around six inches wide that you would like to sell please let me know.

Steel front guard Adelaide

Hello all

I am after a front mudguard along the lines of a Harley Heritage Softail.
Around 6 1/2 inches wide is ideal.
I will be cutting this guard up so damage to the front half is not a problem.
If you have a guard like this in your scrap pile can you please let me know.

Thanks

Harley drum/disk

Hello all

I am just tossing a few ideas around in my head and would like to know the answer to this question.

Do Harley Drums share the same pitch circle diameter (hole spacing) as the disks?
In other words will a Harley drum bolt onto a disk wheel?

Thanks

Apparently some such as the vs800 have alloy rims. I haven’t found a list of what uses what rim. I am assuming know one rides a stock b...

Re: Steel pipe

Aussiehard I am building a Bobber style bike and and the Girder will be similar to what is found on late 40's Indian Chiefs. I have got hold of some pressings for the legs and I just have to make the rest. So no problem with 550 for me. Would a larger diameter front wheel help you out? I am not sure...

Re: Drum hub

Any axle size will do, 17mm and up is better, but if I don't like the axle size it is not to hard to get different bearings.

It is going on an Indian bobber.
