I'm up in the air about whether to duplicate the air bottle, which I suppose was for airing up tires after punctures were repaired.



It would be fairly difficult to replicate.

Right now here's where I'm at on the plan for the 1964 ISDT Tribute bike.

Right side siamesed low pipe - yes
Dented and shortened muffler - yes
Quick Change axles - maybe
Air bottle - probably not
Keep my shiney tank
Change the fenders to get rid of the reversed color scheme
Seat cover with integrated storage - yes
Extended sump guard - yes
Handlebar with crossbar - yes
channel lock pliers rubber banded to the crossbar - yes
Number plates - maybe on the sides
Ride the shit out of it to create the appropriate amount of patination


Am I missing anything?

Here is a picture of the pliers on the crossbar.

Based on the pictures, it appears that the rear axle has levers installed on each end so that wrenches would not be required to remove the wheel. I need to dig out my parts manual to determine of this was a modification, or if it is a normal feature of the quick change axle mentioned earlier.





As near as I can tell, there wasn't anything like that on the front axle.

Well, that's the most important one for a tribute.

Quick change wheels imo is only necessary for a replica. Whatever does it for you is best.
On an Enfield the rear wheel can be taken off while brake and chain remain in position.

If it is a QD hub, I don't know why there would be a Tommy Bar on the sprocket side. To pull the rear wheel you would leave that side tight. The front looks like a solid axle, where you drop the front wheel and not pull the axle.

I'm slowly working on an ISDT replica, a BMW R27 like John Penton rode. You have a much better starting point...

Normal QD rear wheel did not have Tommy Bars. Just normal spindle nuts>

Plenty of choices if you want to replicate the bottle.

The one below is a quart size.

Are you going to duplicate all the places that were safety wired and sealed with an official seal? I understand that dabs of a certain color paint were used by race officials too, to show that things were inspected before or during the race. At any rate, I think you are on a very interesting project!

Not yet. It is in a million pieces in my barn. I'd like to get it ready to ride in the AHRMA ISDT reunion ride next year.

BTW, I was looking in my latest Classic Dirt Bike where they have a section on the ISDT. The factory Triumphs have a Tommy Bar on the sprocket side of what is clearly a QD hub.

I probably won't go that far. Thought about though.

I hadn't heard about the AHRMA event. When & where is it? Is it open to all? I couldn't find it on the website.

I suppose the sprocket side Tommy bar may have been to facilitate quick chain and sprocket maintenance without the need to carry a wrench. I guess I'll start looking for a QD hub.

I see that Classic Dirt Bike is available for iPad. Is that in issue 29?

Thanks
