Thread: 1922 Indian Footboard/brake pedal bracket

  1. #11

    Default

    Since my last update little has been done to the bike. Work, Family, Easter visit with in laws in Mass. to name a few priorities. What I failed to mention is there is spark!! The elbow fitting from the oil tank to the crankcase needs to be reattached by solder or brazing, so other than adding some Marvel Mystery Oil to the top via the spark plug openings and slow turning of the crank I'm not ready to kick it over intentionally. However, When re-installing the kick pedal after finishing the installation of the footboard bracket I must have 'kicked' it just enough for my father ( on the other side of the bike ) to say " I got shocked ! '. To confirm Dad held the spark plug wires while I gently cranked and we saw spark jump between wire and ground for both cylinders. Soon, hopefully, oil and gas and we'll see.

    I'm thinking one of two things here. Either this is the wrong light for this bike or the licence plate bracket is wrong and there was one that was mounted above the light. Maybe you can help me in this regard.

    That looks to me to be an acetylene tail lamp and not an electric one.

    Tom,
    I'm not challenging your viewpoint for I have no knowledge of the topic. I wonder, however, how anyone would switch over to acetylene when originally there was electric from the get go.

    Go to walkermachine.com for some parts if you can't find original parts

    I'm pretty sure Tom is right about the taillight. I think it's an 20th century gas light
