merlin 52, 53, 57 falcon 54, 55, 58 wheels

Post  rabonnett on Mon May 05, 2014 7:53 pm

Hi

I'm slowly piecing together a very rough 1951 falcon 54 or 55. Having sourced or repaired various bits I have been trying to find a pair of original wheels (or just hubs) but am not getting very far.
I was wondering if anyone would know where I could obtain some. It looks as though the 52,53,54 & 55 models all had the same wheels (I think) and possibly the 57& 58?

Alternatively, if anyone knows of or has a compatible alternative available (possibly James, sun, excelsior wheels etc) that could be used instead or as a temporary substitute until such time as the right ones could be obtained I would be a very happy man, one step closer to getting the old girl back on the road

Any assistance would be much appreciated,

Russ

I may have a NOS front hub available soon, but I have pinched the brake plate to replace my old warped one. Also missing the outer sleeve nuts, but the spindle, inner races & cones are all unworn.

Will do. Be a little while yet, late June? I have an Interceptor to finish first.

I have a spare NOS front brake plate for a Falcon 58 which could perhaps go with Jack's hub. Let me know if you are interested, it won't be going anywhere soon!

Front hub now available complete. Can't raise Russ on the PM though. Hopefully will see this posting?

The front wheels were common on all mentioned models but the rear are different.
The 52 merlin and the 54 falcon are rigid framed and have the brake on the opposite side to the sprocket but the 57 merlin and the 58 falcon are sprung rear and have them on the same side....
