Help identifying rear wheel / brake drum please

Post  fulmar88 on Thu Jan 08, 2015 7:46 pm

This rear wheel was fitted to my 1936 Cruiser. It is very clearly not off a Cruiser. Can anyone help identify it please? The drum is 7 inches, the wheel 19. The sprocket has 40 teeth. There are 40 spokes.









Thanks, Steve.

Ooh thanks John. I'll have a google at some pics. It might put a few pence back in the restoration pot.

John, I've had a good search and this is the most definitive picture I can find (so far). Confirms what you thought I'd say. Click on the 'more photos' link to see the other side.

Steve , yes looks that way, that site is Mark Upham's British only and he does know what he is on about, he was previously a dealer in Somerset (Wellington) till the late 80's until he re-located to Austria, I bought my engine for the first FB Kestrel I restored in 1986 when he had a large storage shed at Blackpole on the A38 and was clearing this prior to his upping sticks for the continent

I remember seeing his place on The Motorbike Show when Henry Cole was restoring a Bonneville. Looked like a cracking aladdin's cave.

Last shed I saw Henry in was Jake Morgan's in Oxford, he was buying a 70's Kawasaki, Jake spoke to me at Kempton and suggested Henry was looking to film in other premises for the show and how would I feel about letting him view my 30+ tons of rust ! I said "thanks but no thanks"

JH, an old mate of mine is asking how much I want for the BSA wheel / brake plate you identified a few weeks ago. I've cleaned both up now and noticed the brake plate is bent along the line of the stiffener (see pics). I guess it was a common problem and the stiffener was there to alleviate the problem (not very successfully). A 'mates rates' price would be fine, it's just I have absolutely no idea. I understand if you'd rather not comment.
