Aluminum Head for Plunger Frame A7/A10?
« on: 05.01. 2007 21:04 »
Was there an alluminum head offered either optional or aftermarket for Plunger framed A-10's.
I just bought a motor that has one that I have been told has a swingarm alloy head fabbed to it...I don't have the motor yet.
Cheers,
P

It would depend on what year the bike was. I would think if it's 1951 or later the Road Rocket or Super Rocket heads will fit anyway.  *conf*

Fido,
Thanks for the input. It is a golden flash 1952 plunger. It is in a 1951 frame..besides the point.

It is probably a swinging arm RR or SS head, it can be identified by numbers on manifold. Plunger heads and barrels are smaller in finning than swinging arm but are interchangeable.
