Looking for 1954-1956 Triumph 8" brake drum and hub.

Under these part numbers:

1954 - Hub - W573A, Brake Drum - W1056

1955 - Hub - W573A, Brake Drum - W1165

1956 - Hub - W573A, Brake Drum - W1165


Will also consider 1957 Hub

1957 - Hub - W1260, Brake Drum - W1165


Just hub and drum Or hub, drum and brake plate or complete wheel, etc. etc. Ideally a wheel with a shouldered aluminum alloy 19" rim already laced up and ready to go!


I have a '54-'56 brake plate already and am thinking about lacing the hub and brake drum to a shouldered aluminum alloy rim but if a complete wheel is available at a reasonable cost I am definitely interested.

Cash, trade, cash and trade.

Do you happen to have a picture of what you are looking for?

I have a mystery wheel that looks like a run of the mill Triumph front brake from '67 is but is a twin leading shoe. Maybe a conversion.


The formula for how many motorcycles to own is:
n+1=y
n = the number of motorcycles you currently own.

Hi Bill,

I sure have and right now it is up to $511.25. Maybe if it was my goal to win trophies for having a 100% correct bike I would be standing by with my finger on the mouse button ready to duke it out with the other bidders but that is way out of my price range at this point! My bike is a 1955 frame with a 1954 engine so at this point will be regarded as a bitsa. That is a very nice wheel though that is for sure and the seller, manxtt, always has some very nice goodies up for sale regularly.

Generally stuff like this is going to command very high prices on eBay. One of the reasons I posted on the board where a more realistic price can be paid. No bidding war, etc. etc. Of course, it can be expected going in that something like this isn't going to be cheap but on the flip side I am not paying so much for one wheel that I have to take out a second mortgage!

Couldn't believe that when I saw it, hope the guy I bought one from 6 months ago for GBP 200 didn't see it cry
One good thing came out of it for me though, I never knew the Triumph part no. was stamped on the rim as well.
Anybody know what year this was stopped?

Cheers
Brian

Do you mean the rim part number or wheel as a whole part number ? I've only ever seen the rim number. In this case it should be W351.

Dunlop and Jones stamped the Triumph number on all Rims they supplied, it was the only way they could be identified, for example the WM2-19 came with quite a few different spoke hole sizes and angles. From what I remember for 19" Rims the Pre Unit half width hubs were indeed W351 and later full width hubs were W1230 which continued to 1970.
