This transmission had been sitting on a shelf in a workshop for over 30 years until i scooped it up at an estate sale. The last bike it was in was a full custom, no messing around, gooseneck chopper circa early 1970’s.
I’m sure this is a 1936 transmission, it does not have a vent boss cast into the transmission case and no production date stamped.
The kickstart cover is from an early panhead and kickstart pedal are the only things incorrect on this trans. The kickstart arm is correct. It had also been sitting with oil it, so the inside has been preserved and it shifts through all the gears. There have been no repairs or welds to cases. Being a barn find (or technically a ‘workshop’ find) it has been checked out to ensure all the internals are in order.
