Member needs spares

Post  kerabo on Tue Jan 12, 2016 8:08 pm

I have had a call frm a member who has a Cruiser 68. He is short of a rear hub and a seat to make his bike complete. He says it's not a full width hub. It don't mean much to me but I said I would post on here for him.
If anyone can help with spares or advice please let me know and I will contact him.

Regards Ken

Cruiser 68 rear hub

Post  piston 197 on Tue Jan 12, 2016 8:18 pm

Unusual rear hub, used for one year only (1954)it is basically the same as a Falcon 58/67 rear hub, but it is a 6" item instead of 5" used in the Falcons, would be easy to make one, by getting a normal 6" cruiser rear hub, stripping out the centre alloy trim and turning down the flange opposite to the brake drum to smaller diameter ( approx. 3") and drilling for spokes, or alternatively if you were not fussy you could just use the later 6" hub from the Cruiser 75,80,84 and 89, it would not be "right" but would do the same job ?

Thank you John and Mike.
I will pass your ideas on to him. As you say John that would be reasonably easy so long as care was taken . Do you think the spindle and brake backplate would fit from a later cruiser?

Will it fit ?

It is the same swing arm and brake plate so cannot see why not ? and the later ones have the benefit of having a sprocket that is detachable from the brake drum, early model 71 and the half width Cruiser 68 ones have the sprocket and brake drum all in one .
