(For those who don't know, this is the brake plate with a rectangular lug that slips into a slot in the swing arm,1954 being the only year that had this. Used on T100 and T110 of that year.)

It was not a strong feature, and severe braking would tear it loose, The "fix" was the tubular strut we know so well that runs forward from the threaded stud on the brake plate to the brazed lug on the swing arm.

But this plate bsalloyd is searching for will help make his '54 T110 restoration authentic.

You may have to convert a later one. It can't be to difficult.

Is there anything else you are hunting for? Several parts were unique to the 1954 T100 and T110 ONLY.

As you can tell by my sign on I am not a real Triumph guy. However the 1954-1956 T110 is one of the prettiest bikes ever built. Yes, prettier than the ever so popular Bonneville. I know I need the rear lift brace. I have several toolboxes and oil tanks, not sure which one if any are correct. There of small details I don't know much about. A friend of mine, Bob Kizer (deceased) helped me get started on the restoration. So, I quess the answer is right now I don't have a list of all the unique feature. LloydL

PS: I do have a complete front wheel assembly with scalloped brake drum.

Still looking for the correct plate for the T110. I thought I would post a picture to help you sort through the parts pile. Thanks for looking.

Aha! Thank you Mr. Swede, not heavy with preunit Triumph info, I was wondering what’s the problem finding one. I see that LUG in the parts photo now.

It is Lloyd that posted the picture. This brake plate was only used one year for the T100 and T110. So, I was hoping someone would look in their junk pile and find one.

True,…. And Mr. Swede pointed out the way to ID it again after 3+ months had past. Didn’t mean to diminish your effort, and a bump to the top of the list can’t hurt! Might help to repeat the Lug comment anytime the search through the “junk pile” request comes up. Good luck!

How different is it from a rigid plate. They used a rectangular lug in a similar fashion that slotted into the frame.

Second that. A side-by-side example picture, front and back would be great if it is possible too!

As my login name implies I am basically a BSA guy. I have most pieces of a 1954 and 1956 T110. Along with that I have the parts books to those models and no other references. So all of you Triumph guys please give me a hand on my quest to assemble the 1954 model. Thanks, Lloyd

Hello Loyd.

You can get a used brake plate from Mitch Klempf for 100$....Part N° is 37-1081U. Following the link:
http://www.klempfsbritishparts.com/BRAKE-PLATE--REAR--USED-1

Now you might ask why the hell a guy from Switzerland is replying...Well, I have first year swinging arm Pre Unit T100 with the one year notched swinging arm, just that my hub is for a QD-wheel. That QD brake plate is VERY rare.

Good luck and best regards, Martin

Good for you!

Hopefully, you can take and post some detailed pictures of it to this thread, so that we can compare them to their rigid counterparts.

Hello Loyd.

I am happy to read that I was able to help you find this rare part. Since it is a used one make sure to thoroughly inspect the lug area for hairline cracks. And the groove on the left hand side of the swinging arm fork should not battered out.

Maybe you can help me also. I have the 8in piecrust front brake drum and hub. Unfortunately it is not mounted to a rim. If you don't mind, could you please let me know the distance from the outside edge of the cast brake drum to the outside edge of the rim facing to the side of the brake drum, plus the measured width of the rim.

I know there is information in old Triumph Technical bulletins around, but I just want to have confirmation of the data, since this is a 1-year-only piece of design. It would help me tremendously.

Best regards, Martin

KC, I second that motion. There is so much help from people around the world interested in these old Brit bike survivors. When the brake plate arrives I will measure and post the dimensions. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Lloyd L

Lloyd,
