FB Cruiser first turn over since 1978! Problem with rear wheel

Post  philipburton on Mon May 08, 2017 10:01 pm

Hi Everyone

After 8 month restoration, my 1954 Cruiser turned over for the first time since 1978! See video attached!

However see photo - the rear wheel is seriously off to one side and rubbing the rear mudguard. I suspect it has been put on incorrectly in the past -
does anyone have a reasonable resolution close up photo they can email me of the rear hub, so I can see where spacers are going etc.

Also would be helpful to have close up photos of rear brake pedal, and exhaust setup (Think mine has again been modified)

68 Rear Hub

Post  MoscowFlyer on Tue May 09, 2017 8:03 am

Hi, here is a diagram of the rear hub on the Cruiser 68, hope this helps. The engine sounds nice, I have the 1956 Cruiser 75 which is very much the same as yours except for the later forks and hubs. Mike

Wheel offset

Post  piston 197 on Tue May 09, 2017 10:49 am

Is the rim in the correct place with regard to the hub ? have you had the rear wheel rebuilt?
If the offset is just a bit out loosening the spokes an equal amount on one side and tightening the same amount ( 1 turn each for e.g._) will move the rim over.
Obviously this will not help if the wheel spacers have been fitted incorrectly, so first check if rear sprocket is in alignment with the gearbox sprocket, if this lines up ok it will be the rim in the wrong place ?
