Attention Cruiser owners pic reqd

Post  philipburton on Mon May 15, 2017 2:00 am

Hi everyone

I have need of a photo of the rear end of a Cruiser showing the relationship between the rear wheel and the seat/chassis. No matter what I try it doesnt sit centre of the bike so want to know if this is normal.

Example of what photo I need is attached

My email address is butron@xtra.co.nz

Thanks in advance!

Phil

Does the mudguard sit squarely in the frame? It looks over to one side in the picture

Yeah its reasonably square, but the tyre is square to the frame too, but its just centred off to the right, due to the chain sprocket and brake assembly on the left hand side, everything seems ok according to the drawings, but the tyre is not centred in the forks - sorry does that make sense?

Cruiser models ?

Post  piston 197 on Tue May 16, 2017 11:35 am

The original post stated Cruiser 80 ?? picture of original bike in first post is either a Cruiser 68 or 71 ?
I think I may have the rear light hump if you need one.

I agree Mike

Post  piston 197 on Tue May 16, 2017 1:43 pm

Yes I agree with you Mike, he asked about a cruiser 80 and then put up a pic of a bike which from the rear was obviously not an 80, as it had the 1954/5 rear guard, so was trying to nip any pictures of a Cruiser 80 being shown, as they would be irrelevant.

Rear wheel

Post  kerabo on Tue May 16, 2017 5:45 pm

Looking st that picture something looks very wrong.
It's not so much over to one side at twisted as if the swinging arm is bent.

wheel alignment

Post  piston 197 on Tue May 16, 2017 6:01 pm

There is a massive amount of brake drum visible ? in the rearward picture, looks like the rim offset has been built wrongly ? if the sprocket on the drum lines up with the gearbox sprocket, then the wheel has been built wrongly and needs to be more to the left ?

sorry everyone - my mistake its not a cruiser 80, its a 68, must have been asleep when I did it.

Yeah interested to hear more about the brake drum being assembled wrong, the swingarm is normal, but it just looks like the hub has been built incorrectly

Would appreciate any photos of a properly assembled hub if someones got one

Groan I think my private messaging isnt working so sorry John for the multiple messages

Hi JH

Sorry for multiple messages, still getting the hang of this forum.

You're correct, it is a Cruiser 68, my apologies for the misunderstanding.

You mentioned that the rear hub may have been assembled incorrectly, I reckon this might be the case, as all other settings seem fine. When I got the bike it looked like a real oddjob had been done on trying to put it back together and there was a shedload of parts left over so will try and check it out this weekend. I have the exploded drawings of the hub mechanism so that's a good start I guess. You mention that the sprocket should not be in line with the gearbox sprocket - wouldn't this make the chain work at an angle? Sorry not an expert so would appreciate if you could explain further or if you have a photo I can work off? Thanks in advance.

If you have a rear hump for the light available to buy, I am definitely interested, as I cant seem to locate any anywhere. The only issue would be I live in NZ so I can pay extra freight costs etc, let me know.

Sorry for the confusion, but you guys have been so helpful in getting me to the point of being able to start the thing, some minor cosmetic fixing and it will be on NZ roads for the first time since 1978, which is pretty amazing!

Cheers

Phil
