SS100 drawings last update: 6/2005
I beg you pardon - please do not expect me to put my drawings on the internet. There are hundreds of hard working hours in them, so I just cannot afford giving them away (at least not yet).
|First I needed some engine drawings. Thanks to a good friend in the
Brough Club I was able to measure up a dismantled 1926 KTOR engine. This is
the crankcase viewed from the drive side.
Note the early KTOR style lettering and absence of strengthening webs.
|The engine is in remarkably good condition.
This is the crankshaft viewed from the timing side.
|A timing side view
|I recorded a lot of measurements, spent a lot of hours at the computer
and finally made a drawing of the crankcase.
Sorry again, the enlarged picture will not be of much use to you - please bear with me if I do not feel like giving all this work away for free.
|You can, however, download this drawing. It is an original one, and not
The file is 151kB large.
|I also took a lot of measurements of the cylinder heads and made a drawing of these...
|...as well as the barrels.
|Another problem is the frame. I understand G.B. updated the design of
this very frequently. I still have no drawing of a 1927 AGS frame.
The one on the pic is a replica made to 1925-1926 dimensions.
|Same for the forks, except that this is easier.
|2005: I have now, after a number of travels, and after spending much time in taking measurements off different bikes (thank you for your patience, Peter!), been able to make a complete AutoCAD drawing of the frame...and the forks
|The whole project will still require a lot of drawings to be made. If you have anything to offer, we may talk a swap..?
