Lugs on TS Frame for Pump for inflating tyres
« on: 29 Jul 2016 at 08:31 »
I am currently building a TS/1924 from parts.  I have a good frame with lugs brazed on to the tube below the top tube to which the fuel tank is attached.  The lugs are for the purpose of holding a hand pump for inflating tyres and the lugs look to be original fittings.  Other TS frames I have seen do not have these fittings for the pump.  As far as I can determine the frame has the same dimensions as a "standard" TS frame.  Could someone please advise me if the frame with lugs is TS, or is it for a different belt drive model?
Thank you
Jim47

Thanks Carl, I'll use this frame as planned.  Also, you have answered another question: why some tanks have fittings and others don't.
Regards Jim47.
