New Owner of a 1924 SW24 in the USA
« on: 25 Aug 2014 at 01:52 »
Hello Everyone,
I recently purchased this SW24 that came over from Britain in 2011. It seems in pretty good shape (nick?) and I am planning on hopefully just replacing the control cables and drive belt before trying to fire her up. This will be a rare bike over here I think. Anyway, the bike came with some kind of bracket or stand that I'm not sure about. Has anyone seen this before and know what it is?
Thanks,
Chuck Hoffman

Chuck,

There are a few 2-3/4hp models scattered here in the States. They were a popular import from the 1990s onward.

I looked through the June 1924 2-3/4hp illustrated spare list, but do not see that part. There were optional leg shield available, but I do not see why they would need a bracket shaped like that. Nor were they into crash bars at that time.
