welded lugs on VB ?

Postby Vincent.vanGinneke » Sat Oct 20, 2018 4:16 pm

I am looking for a picture of a late rigid frame (1953?) where the rear mudguard supports are welded on.
How is the saddle support arranged on those frames ?
anyone ?

Hi Dave, I'd like to see how those later rigid frames are around the saddle support.
I think they are welded using a sheet metal pressing just like the one up front where the exhaust is attached on to.
Your '50 VB has the cast lugs, I know how they look so no need to send a pic, but Thanks!

HI Vincent,
I can take a photo of my 1953 tomorrow if it helps. Do you also need any measurements?

Hi Klaus, No, just a picture would be fine, then I know how it looks. Thanks !

p.s. does your '53 have cast lugs or lugs from pressed sheet metal ?

Vincent,
my 53 frame has welded on lugs from pressed steel. You seem to have looked at it during the Annual Rally. Can't you remember?

I am afraid that's another senior moment ...

Hello Vincent,
look how the lugs on my 1953 rigid frame look like.
