    looking at my rear wheel speedometer angle drive and looking at these 2 pictures, is my drive in the wrong position ? should the drive be above or below the frame tube....? i can see the cable housing runs straight on the 26 and the 28 whereas my housing has a bit of a bend in it.....

    the more i'm looking at my pictures, the more convinced i am thinking my drive gear needs to be above the frame tube, not below......26JD sailor.jpg

    Hi Steve, I think that on your 1927 it probably needs to go on top of the top tube based on your pictures.

    On my 1920 the cable for the hand operated second brake goes in this position so in my situation then the speedo cable goes on top of the bottom frame tube.

    However if a second brake was fitted on your bike then the speedo cable would need to go where it would fit. (if that makes sense)

    I am willing to bet that, in 1927, where people had a second brake fitted then the speedo cable went either where you have it at the moment or on top of the bottom tube.
