I bought a '47 EL in a wishbone frame circa 1972 ($500!). Got it from a buddy who, it must be said, was a dope. Both bottom frame tubes were broken clean apart, and he'd been riding the bike like that for more than a year. I tried it too, cautiously, for a few miles. It didn't *feel* broken. Nevertheless, being a coward, I got it glopped back together with a stick welder.

You're no coward, I'm sure; so I say yeah, go ahead and ride the thing. Why live forever?

I'm having a brain-fuck on the brake stay.


Caliper bracket has 3/8" hole and square swingarm has existing 1/2 hole.
Approximately 12" length needed.

Add to that equation an offset of 1/2".



I have been searching for a solution but main setback is the 1/2" hole in swingarm.



Any ideas ?

1" x 1/4" flat bar, a hammer, a drill, bits, and a hacksaw.

...Or send me a pile of $$$$$$ and I'll have it in the mail Tuesday.

Instead of digging out a pile of $$ for joe49 or buying some fancy-schmancy, heim joint doodadery I hit the multiple hoard(junk) piles and corners of the garage.


3/4" dom tube, check.


3/8 bung, check.


Welder with 7' of flux core left on reel, check.






The dom tube has i.d. of 1/2". Easy enough. Cut a piece 0.850" and we have our swingarm side. 3/8" bung was 1" so cut off counter sunk portion and we're good to go. Weld 1/2" end and see how it lines up...dead center of caliper bracket. Ok, cut 2/3 of the way into tube and bend an offset. Line up w/ 3/8" bung, tack, remove and weld it up.









If I had smaller rod laying around I would have used that. Oh, well. You run what you got sometimes.

Yup.



Considering the front drum is mostly cosmetic at this point, I thought bigger is better. Once I get the foot clutch reconfigured I will make my way to the front brake. I'm considering a round swingarm in the near future so back brake may change.

My name is John, Im a bike-aholic.( Hi, John !)
Its been 3 weeks since I have ridden a bike. (Clapping)
It started when I was 5 years old. My father had a motorcycle. His father had a tractor. I knew I was different when at that young age, I burned my fingers on a hot exhaust pipe. After that I have been chasing the "high" for almost 50 years.

Welcome, JAWS.

(clap)

So we are hearing that you've spent your life repairing broken bikes cobbled together by booger eating morons with ham-fists for a long time. Troglodytes with wrenches and cool guy t-shirts and tattoos have created monstrosities that seem to find their way to you and you fix them like a mother hen, often at the expense of your own sanity.

How does that make you feel?

(long uncomfortable pause)

(cool guy shop bro at back pretends to get coffee, then slips out the back door)

Wait! All are welcome here. Come back. No judgements

(sheepish shuffling return with eyes to the floor)

Do you want to share today, cool guy? You've been coming around for a while and we haven't heard from you.

(expression shows he's really wresting with this, he wants to come clean)

Uhhhh. Ummm

My love for bikes is real since the day my pop took me on his at my second birthday. It grew as I grew older until one day i got my own. The world was mine, old bikes, places to go, cold beer, good friends. . .

(hesitation)

. . . but somehow I lost my way. Maybe it was the Instagram? Maybe it was the Chop Cult? I don't know how it happened, but one day I started seeing my friends and fellow bike addicts as customers to be fleeced. It struck me that the image could be sold for more money than quality work.

And I rode it all the way to the bottom, leaving a trail of burned relationships and shitty motorcycles with fugazi paint jobs and gaudy logos. Underneath the flash were hose clamps and wire nuts and electrical tape and . . .

(breaks down into tears)

Welcome, cool guy. We love you. Thanks for sharing

My ability to post has been hampered by my career as a standup comedy/male stripper. Business is good. Lots of laughs, but I think they are paying me to leave rather than to stay.


Lets recap...


Rocker clutch, gone. In its place is a traditional style shift bracket/lever.
Hashing out if I want 5/16" bolt w/ old brake rod adjuster to hold clutch rod or use another lever w/ 3/8" pin thru eye.





The 3/8" pin uses a snap ring retainer. The shovel kept spitting those off of the shifter drum so I dont have a lot of faith when it comes to using them on a clutch lever.


The 1/8" thick bracket flexes when lever is pressed down but I found one thats 7mm so that will find it way on soon.




Other issue is rod end at trans. Rocker had a spring to keep it from moving around and now this set up is all over the place. Rod freely move in/out of clutch arm, lever move also.


Trans lid is bump stop froward and battery tray is bump stop backward. Not an ideal set-up, for sure.

Leave the surclip for the buzzards and use the bolt. Much better holding and use a lock nut, or poly nut. On the rod, just slightly bend the end, so it swedges in the slot. Even a drop of super glue to boot. If you bend it enough it will stay there until you tap it out. On my chopper, I cut the end of the arm off, and drilled and tapped it and use another front eyelet with a shortened allen bolt and longer shoulder to hold it in place with a flat washer. Worked for years and never failed.

The cut and tap method didnt even cross my mind. Thanks for the tip. The arm is chewed up by the chain anyway so its not like a pristine factory original.



What about the free play of the arm itself ? I have 1" of travel.


Edit: O-ring on both sides of "shifter" lever shaft is keeping it from swinging freely.


Double edit : Duh.. clutch pushrod adjustment.
