As lined out in my previous POST on finned rocker oil manifolds for Triumph twins I identified this one from 1960 as what I believed to be the earliest type made by Webco.
Well, a new never before seen example in my 20+ years of looking was found at the recent Clubman's swap meet. The five fin pre-unit manifold. Slightly bigger than the four fin counterpart and drilled all the way through with a set screw blanking the oil hole on the far side. Spacing of rocker spindle holes are an exact match. Year of first manufacture UNKNOWN. One of many exciting finds that day!
The Show & Go Cycle Shop is my private two car garage located in the foothills of Central CA. I am building everything from early Desert Racers - Street or Strip Dragbikes - 1960's Style Show Bikes - to 70's style Radical Choppers. Specializing in Pre-Unit construction 650 & 500 twins and vintage aftermarket parts identification. Buy, Sell, Trade, parts made by Webco, MCM, MCA, Bates, Flanders, Wassell, Superior, Routt's Cycle, etc. Period photos wanted. If you have stuff for sale related to what you see here email me. I will post pics of my projects from time to time and keep an ongoing thread of pictures and old magazine articles featuring modified British Motorcycles from 1946 onwards.
