help identify this please
« on: 23 January, 2019, 13:50:59 »
hi all, just removed this from my D14, its a side case / airbox / storage set up.

Its very well made, although hand painted in hammerite!!!! and the airbox set up is integrated into the side with an attached filter.

was this a home made item or was it a proper made part?

thanks

It's a thingy-me-jig for fastening a watsit to a doofa and an air flter for straining wind breaking without stains.. Then again I might look along the later A65 airbox lines...  Just a guess...  ::)   Griff

Its basically what I'be done with my B175- The standard rubber "hose" from the carb intake connects to a flange on the back of the RHS air filter box which in standard format has a large triangular air filter fitted. Now because these filters are horrendously expensive I modified he flange so I could fit a cheapo pancake filter instead- seems to work and is about 50 quid cheaper

hi, its not just the filter im talking about, its the whole side casing, which is completely different, if you look its gor a storage compartment on one side, and the other forms part of the filter,

Yes.. it certainly looks like a home fabricated replacement- you should be able to get the proper replacements from Draganfly or Burton Bike Bits or an Autojumble

i have all the original parts, im not wanting to put it back together as a road bike, im building a classic lightweight speedway cycle from the frame and forks.

i only posted these casings as thats what came on the bike and iv not seen anything like these before. They are very well made for a "shed build" i initially thought the bike may have need ex army / post office or something.

theres no frame number that i can see under years of hammerite, so once i blast it off i will see. oh and no V5 either, so hard to place, but it all looks like a D14
