1955 falcon

Post  bridayo on Tue Aug 20, 2013 7:22 pm

Hi new to the Forum although i was a club member for some years,
can anyone advise did the front forks on this model have a drum brake stop on the right fork leg
or a thread for the wheel spindle, i seem to remember a raised stud on each leg which served as a stop,
and no thread cut as the wheel had a knock out spindle? right or wrong?

Nearly right,!
Yes stop on both legs, wheel can be put in with brake on either side,
No thread in forks , but no knock out spindle either, fixed spindle, slotted (well 1/2 slotted) fork bottoms and sleeve nut on each end.
Also falcon 70 (1955 model) different headstock spindle to later models , castellated head to spindle and threaded top yoke.
