Just a little word of warning. My son had his 15-year-old Ducati frame powder coated. The police stopped him on a random check and impounded his bike because they couldn't read the frame number.

Thanks for the advice John, but both gears are knackered. I had hoped the gear was shrunk on to the gearbox shaft and I could grind it off and fit new gears.
Elsewhere on the forum I saw a set of new gears for a 'Q' type gearbox. I take it they would not be the same?

1939 4F Speedo Drive

Hi Guy, Have no parts to help you with but I also have a 1939 4F. You mention tapered handlebars. Mine has a 7/8" handle bar with an added 1/16" strip welded where the shockmount grips. I had always assumed these to be original equipment as it is neatly done and has been chromed over. I ma...

No, nothing like it. The Enfield one bolts on to the front engine plate and folds up behind the exhaust pipe. Will post a picture when I can get at that bit of the bike.

Re: My 1939 4f. Taken a few years ago.

It was a strange side stand. An after market thing I think. It had a trigger that connected to the clutch mechanism by Bowden cable and automaticall retracted when the clutch was operated. I used it for a while but replaced it with an Indian Enfield sidestand that swings out of sight under the exhau...

Thanks Nev. Just had a look at the bike and it's not as bad as I expected. I think I remembered to spray it with 3 in 1 at some time. The main job is going to be dismantling the gearbox to renew the speedo drive gear on the shaft. I spotted a kit on one of the forum replies.

I don't know if it helps, but I used a side stand off an Indian Enfield. A bit of drilling and grinding and it works a treat.

Hello

I'm an old/newby. I own a 1939 4f, bought back in 1989. It was in pretty poor condition but complete. Started to strip it for rebuild in 91, spread all the parts around and had a heart attack... Felt well enough to restart in 93 but did it on a shoestring, not knowing if I would ever work again and ...
