Group,

This brake is on the front end of a 61 Triumph,I just picked up. Serial number is an H18XXX which makes it either a 500 or 350 (can't figure out how to tell if it's a 350 or 500 either). Anyone have any idea what it's really from?

Alan,
Looks similar to the brake plate on a wheel I recently aquired with some other pre-unit Triumph stuff. Can you please post a picture of the complete bike? Is it a keeper or a flipper?

Tarvin,

This thing is half way out the door as I write this. Real piece of junk. Whole front end looks like it is probably pre-unit. Engine has good compression, but has broken fins on both the head and the cylinder. The cylinder fins have all been drilled about every 1/2 to 3/4" to lighten (I guess). Has two Concentrics on it, wireing a mess, fenders look to be jap. Strangist part is the top frame tube under the gas tank has been cut out and replaced with a piece of pipe. Gas tank looks stock and is real clean inside. Bike looks like it has been stored inside all it's life. Also strange is the numbers match.

Has flip-up foot pegs. My guess is that someone raced this thing maybe wrecked it and someone bought it put the different front end on, some strange handle bars and a bolt on light and tried to make it a street bike again. Has a nice set of pipes on it, shorty mufflers. Still has the lugs on the frame for the bath-tub. Oh and Ankron wheels which have seen better days.

If someone has $750.00 they can come and pick it up. I can post some pictures if someone cares.

Alan -
That looks like a stock 1957 T110 brake plate modified by adding Jap DLS brake cams, rods and linkage. (You can tell from the cheap chrome it's Jap.)

"For every action, there is an opposite but equal reaction." So a true DLS brake plate has to stand up to double the internal forces and needs all sorts of backside ribbing to handle the additional loads. It's not nearly as simple as adding holes, cams and rods.

IMHO: a death trap.

Yes, but it was clearly done by someone who doesn't grasp physics: the connecting link is bent to pass by the axle, and the slave cam is completely out of synch.

This is as bad as the butchery that I have discovered on the T150 that I picked up here in Venezuela - jap front fork stanchions held in (just) by a couple of threads, bolts only just long enough, engine in skewed as they lost the spacers, no nut on the back of the brake rod mechanism - the list goes on and on - another death trap. Are you sure this bike wasn't maintained by a Venezuelan too??
