Strange Modifications...
« on: 15.09. 2009 11:17 »
I'm starting a new thread in hope that you can show pictures and a little detail of what previous owners had tried to achieve with their bikes... So here is a start off.

Obviously we have here a sprocket that drives the dynamo. An unmodified one on the left and one on the right but what was the previous owner trying to achieve here? Any idea cuz I'm completely stumped!  *dunno*

He tried to reclaim a worn sprocket by building it up with braze, then drilling to make teeth.  Gave up though.

Might have been an attempt to pick up grease and fling it around a bit - was PO one Heath Robinson?

TT may be right. I did similar to some change gears on an old lathe.
