Cool, you got one of those rare two-piece drive sprockets. They are pretty valuable for quick gearing changes on the fly, strictly for track use. Did you keep the other half of that rare speed equipment?

Oh yeah, you should also do an intro, let people know who you are and what you ride.

jeb, are you being sarcastic or is it really a quick release sprocket?



i'm assuming your joking but i was just curious. who knows since i discovered the hard way that norton had a kind of quick change rear axle set up.

it was not dangerous, but a pain in the ass to fab your own axle because since it was two parts, you have to make a bearing spacer that will fit and thread into the other half of the axle, oh and all in 9/16 axle thickness.

what is the axle thickness of triumph?


i like how triumph neck is one inch just like harley. but my norton was 17/18...

norton just had to fuck everything up.... LOL

Naaah, just funnin. Welcome to the JJ, Capt Cal. That's some good shrapnel. Did you keep it? I have a small reserve of interesting motor shrapnel like floated valves embedded into the piston crown, melted spark plugs, snapped cams, and an old air compressor piston the size of a soup bowl.
