Redundant Cylinder

Post by HPbyStan » Sat Jan 01, 2011 4:53 am

Since the projects section is still for unit singles I thought I'd post the A10 pile of junk I bought and am trying to make something out of here. If you click on the pic it gets bigger but you lose the note under it.

Great set of photos Stan.

Always fancied an A10 myself.

Be good to see it when it's finished.

Interesting photos Stan, please keep us updated :thumb I think a little diversity from the B50, now and then on this forum (in the right place of course ;-) ) stops us from getting too set in our thoughts :smile: this forum would have to go a looooong way to be on a par with the diversity of bikes/makes over on the Brit Bike forum ( and a good forum it is :thumb ) - we are just very very lucky to have Rickard and this forum for our B50 and associated needs.
:thumb :ban :thumb :ban :thumb

I bought a H1 500 Triple front wheel assy to try on my A10. It has the the double leading shoe brake drum on the right like a Brit bike, is a 19" rim with 40 spokes ,fits the forks with just a new axle and almost looks stock. I plan to ride this thing and want to be able to stop. The gent I borrowed the A10 from last Feb to tour New Zealand said to be careful because of the front brake. For quite awhile I wondered what he ment as the brake seemed very progressive and smooth but I was riding it like it wasn't mine. Finally I found myself in a panic stop mode and I saw what he ment. The brake was good for a couple bike lengths and then I'm running an escape plan through what's left of my miniture mind. I'm reconditioning the A10s front wheel also just in case this K*wasak* plan doesn't go as well as I'm hoping.

That twin is already looking like a runner!
Here is my christmas find, now I am paying through the nose I think, note same front end as my 441! LOL!:
Image
I just loved the tank and then realized it had triple C15 barrels cast together! LOL! makes an H1, GT380, Y*maha Seca look like alien technology!
Anyways it will give the 441 a rest from the mountain burn out rides perhaps if I ever get the three C15's firing right.
I know I should part it out as singles but there is no Beat to help modify it.

Note not quite the same as a 441 front end, that is an 8" twin leader front brake rather than the 7" fitted to BSA single and smaller Triumph twins. On my '68 Bonnie the 8"TLS was capable of making the front tyre squeal at 90mph, on a triple there was a little more weight to contend with, hence the F750's and '69 on TT marshall's bikes having the 4LS Fontana hub before moving on to disc brakes.

I guess I was being more general in technology rather than spec sorry. I hope the fork tubes are bigger/thicker than a 441! I found crack around exhaust guide shoulder just now on R3, a guide made fatter by way of braze fill!, good thing I can keep the T150 head if need be welding and building up that is in-accessible as far as I can see. The valve strip video will be a riot!

Added two photos of the '69 K*wasak* 500 triple H1 mark III front wheel in my A10 forks and a note to my A10 page. I think this is going to work out well. Click on the link in my first post on this thread. TKS, STAN
