Hello T-A-F,
Both wheels are quickly detached , having a tommy bar for an axle. Easily removed by hand. The bike has two front side stands and one rear stand enabling the bike to be suspended off the ground when all three are used at once.
The rear wheel on this model has two sprockets of different sizes fitted. The idea was that when you entered the hills you would simply pull over put the bike on its stand,raise the rear third of the back mudguard as its hinged , detach the quick release brake arms,brake rods and remove the tommy axle. Reverse the wheel fit chain and adjust with the finger dial adjusters,brake rods and brake arms and off you go. While that seems easy it's assembling the wheels that is difficult. As the wheel has many parts that need assembling and eventually becomes a standalone part. I'll explain it later when I put it together and supply photos.
Thanks for your comment
Cheers

Hello Andrew,
I'm of a similar view. I'd like to see it finished also. I just ordered a Aluminium tank and with that I have everything now but time. I'm doing the head gasket on my daughters car at the moment. I guess we all have jobs to do outside of what we like doing.
Thank you for your comment
Cheers
Brian

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for dropping by.
I have been busy. I've assembled both wheels hubs etc. Assembled brakes and installed the wheels. I still have a lot to do.
Cut the rear guard to fit. Modify rear stay on front guard to fit around the 4LS brake set up.
The rear wheel and handle bars only went on this week. I've ordered fast action throttles. I"m going to buy Dellorto PHM 38 mm Carbs. The Alloy tank you see isn't the first tank I ordered. It arrived all nicely painted. But unfortunately they wrapped it before the clear was dry. Never mind. Another wall hanging. It didn't fit anyway. So I asked them to send me on unpainted and no brackets fitted tank. This is the tank your looking at.Beautifully made I believe. Especially the painted tank. But then again they only charged me $38 to paint it. And Yes they are Harley Drag bars. Please look around in the photos and I believe you will see more than I have said.
Cheers
Christmas is nearly here.
Brian

   Hello,
  Well  I have the Bob Newby belt drive out and measuring for new distance spacers and a new seal holder. I've been in contact with my machinist and he is up to speed. So its all go ahead.
  then I need to make a new primary cover. I have seen some out of fiberglass ,but they look a bit ordinary. It needs to be alloy and polished. Anyone have one?
  Well that means back to the timing side to finish of the push rods.
    Have a great week

Hi again brt651,
Have you fitted the primary cover yet over the Bob Newby belt drive? I just tried on my Black Shadow and failed even though I have machined away the wall between the clutch and the clutch sprocket.
I have posted my project on http://www.accessnorton.com/crankcase-repair-t24312.html
