Samwel WR Flathead Frames

Samwel WR Flathead Frames

For WR factory racers the MoCo made a special "Light Frame" with numerous lightening holes on forged parts and various brackets omitted to save weight. On the other hand two rear frame braces were added to increase stability and two tabs to accept the spiral springs for a small racing seat. Unlike the original counterpart this reproduction is built from sturdy steel and not from chrome-moly tubing, which was prone to break. Now you can build your authentic race bike with peace of mind. Dimensions and details exactly follow the factory counterpart.

4-speed Transmission 45”/750cc

Fully assembled, ready-to-install, 4-speed (!) transmissions for 1941-up 45 cui./750 cc Sidevalve Harleys.
It is a fact that while the engines seem to last forever, those worn, clunky 45” transmissions can be a continuous source for trouble. Full restorations - and that’s exactly what is often required - are expensive and tasks for the real experienced only, so it is definitely worthwhile to consider a complete replacement. Especially when this replacement is not just a well functioning duplicate of the same old thing but a large improvement, too.
A real drawback with original 3-speed transmissions is the large gear ratio difference between 1st and 2nd, i.e. from 2.47 to 1.57:1 with a consequent big rpm drop. If you ever rode 2-up in the mountains you will know how annoying this can be. The 4-speed version with its extra gear is a vast improvement here because it allows you to stay in the power band much better for an overall riding performance unknown before. Additionally, all gears are machined from modern materials for higher strength and feature an updated tooth-design for smoother and quieter running. Solo machines, sidecar rigs and Servi-Cars - all likewise benfit from these features.
The 4-speed transmission comes completely assembled with all gears, shafts and covers installed for a quick, straightforward installation. It accepts your original primary drive with clutch and the chain sprocket with cover. It looks exactly the same as its 3-speed counterpart so nobody can tell the difference from its outer appearance. The only extra part required is a 4-speed shifter gate.
