My "new" chainguard doesn't fit. No telling what it is off of, it's close. So is all that is missing is relocating the front bracket to the left side of the chainguard, or should I try and find the correct one?
Thanks,
Ken

It is from a gooseneck C15/B40 frame.

You might be able to make it work. I once compared one of these very closely with a B44 chainguard. They appeared identical except for the placement of the front tab, and I seriously toyed with the idea of making the change. However, there are some differences in the height of the rear mounts for various years and models also. So I decided to be patient and get the right one.

The correct guards come up often enough on eBay, and the one you have can be sold for about the same amount as buying the right one. Better that than going through the effort of making the change to the guard and finding that it rubs on the chain because the rear tab isn't set for enough clearance. IMHO.

Thanks Steve, I will start searching eBay for the correct part.

Is the chainguard unique to the 1968 model or will a 67 or 69 fit?

66 probably, 67 and 68 will fit. 69 and 70 were a different rear mount entirely.

You can make a 69/70 fit, in fact I have a 70 on a C15 frame, you fit the guard using the front bracket to bolt it in position and use the rear bracket holes as a guide to drill and tap 2 holes in the flat plate with the spindle slot. Fit 2 bolts and the chainguard is fully fitted. All the changes they made do not make them any less prone to falling apart though smile

Ken,

I have them available.

http://www.pssconline.com/item.wws?sku=40-7718U

or

http://www.pssconline.com/item.wws?sku=41-7710U although the ones with the big flap are really a bigger pain that they are worth.The flap always seems to rub on the tire or chain and I usually just cut them off. Folks seem to like to buy them off me because they match what is displayed in the parts book. Oh well.

Peter

Ken, Your guard would be for the C15 dirt bikes with the gooseneck frame. They run a longer swing arm than the C15 road bikes. There were at least 3 different chain guards for the C15 & B40 gooseneck framed bikes and 4 different guards for the B44 / B25 series (perhaps more?). Two different mount set-ups, both with and without chain / wheel flaps. For those who need to know smile

Thanks Peter, I have order the chainguard from you.

I thought the transmission or primary drive was going south on me, but it was only my old bodged misfit chainguard wearing through.

Thanks Peter for setting me up with a very good conditioned chainguard. It is now stripped, painted and everything lines up as it should. Great store you have there! Nice to see us unit single guys so well taken care of.
