I just spoke to an old man with a long grey beard (who has a 1930's AJS and the same vintage Matchless), he said Murray Mclean motors in Nelson will have things you need, and also this;

He also said the older Harleys have a seperate gearbox that might take a bit more horse if required...

Looking good. Lots of inspiration for me looking at this build as i have a 39' Royal Enfield frame with a pre unit box and Diahatsu Max engine sitting it in. Off to google Lloyd now..... Interesting motor.

Who was that? My old neighbour was an AJS fiend. (And he was pushing 80 last time I saw him) He did a resto on an AJS for a mate of his too. That bike took out best british as some show a few years back.

So im back into this wild creation!!

 

Decided against the Triumph pre unit gearbox and im now on the hunt for a Harley Davidson 4 speed box. Easier for parts and stronger.

 

Also brought some MKII Amal carbs off a Triumph 650 Bonneville so with the help of Nick M he designed some flanges and they are currently getting laser cut then we will weld some pipe in between and then mount the carbs.

Also picked a early Puch Peanut tank which looks great i reckon! Will be terrible on open road mission but who cares!

Also working with a mate on Springer front end. He has cad designed a springer based on early 40s HD and that will be in production in the next couple weeks.

So with all this action happening i brought a set of Pangea Speed Zephyr bars! Its gonna be a pretty wild!

Also getting a mate Phil to spin up some brass trumpets for my carbs too!

This thing is tougher than He-Man.

 

Tank is spec as. This thing rules.

So stoked to see this cracking again!

 

Someone should move it to the Two wheels section though I reckon.

A word of caution, a mate of mine told me a mate of his mate was working on an inner sprung hub with no idea what he was doing and when he opened it up it exploded him. He's dead.

 

So if you open it up don't do it over nice carpet.

 

Also this thing rules and so does your shed.

Thanks dude! Yeah ive also been told not to even think of opening it up. Got no intention to anything with it other than fit a big Firestone tire to it and polish the hell out of it!!
