Thread: Early Panhead Horn

  1. #1

    Default Early Panhead Horn

    I have an early Panhead ('50) that was converted to 12 volts before I owned it. They also hung the cheeziest little horn on it that I've ever seen. I picked-up a 12 volt "replica" that I thought wouldn't look too bad for now, but even with the chrome cover removed you can tell its Taiwan from 50 feet. After disecting it, I got to wondering what the difference is between a 6 and 12volt horn, and could an OEM 6volt be converted to 12? All sources I've seen say not to put 12volts to a 6volt horn when converting, but I have an old 6volt horn in one of my old trucks (converted to 12 volts) that been OK for years- maybe I just don't use the horn much. Guess I could hide a volt-drop behind the fork tins. I'm sure I'm not the first to 'rassle with this problem, anyone have any ideas?

    Kurt, can anyone buy at the 45 Parts Depot website? I've seen lot's of great stuff there but it looks like it's restricted to dealers.

    Yes, anyone can buy.

    If I may, why do you think it's only for dealers? I'll try to make sure that no one else thinks so.

    I also have a box for AMCA members to check when they register. I donate 3.5% of the product sale to the European Chapter to help them grow.

    Doug, I converted my pan over to 12v four years back and didn't swap out the horn and the 6v horn has been working just fine all this time for me.

    Kurt.. I'm another person who thought that 45partdepot was for dealers only. Thats why I was excited to hear about you opening a store front operation in Warren. -Steve

    Is it because of the new registration process?

    Kurt, Several times guys have put up links to your site, but all I can get is the main heading on your home page. I see it says I have to accept "cookies", maybe that's the problem. Why do I have to take cookies? Do you have an analog(printed) catalog?

    Steve, I've used 6volt horns with 12volts before and got away with it, but for what I've been seeing HD horns go for lately, I was concerned about frying one.

    Doug,

    Sorry, no catalog at this time.

    This is a better definition about cookies than I can write:

    Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory. A cookie, like a key, enables swift passage from one place to the next. Without a cookie every time you open a new web page the server where that page is stored will treat you like a completely new visitor.

    Websites typically use session cookies to ensure that you are recognised when you move from page to page within one site and that any information you have entered is remembered. For example, if an e-commerce site did not use session cookies then items placed in a shopping basket would disappear by the time you reach the checkout. You can choose to accept session cookies by changing the settings in your browser

    Maybe it's the link to Colony USA on your top web page? I thought they were wholesale only. Clicking on the link I see it takes you to eBay so they are listing some things there now. ...bill

    Bill,

    Actually Colony USA (& soon Colony Europe) are my companies. We are a worldwide distributor for Colony....both retail and wholesale.

    The link to the Ebay sales is only temporary as we are working on a new site for their entire line of products. We have them all listed there (Ebay) now, but I honestly dislike Ebay and want to have a website of my own.

    Kurt
