Wheel removal
« on: 01.03. 2013 15:44 »
I have found a guy near Brands Hatch that will fit a new S/S or Chrome rim, new S/S spokes and respray my Crinkle hub for £180 inc. Not bad I thought.
Question. I do not have a center stand or Jack. Any tips on getting the back wheel out please and do I have to remove my new Gold Star mudguard and shocks.

Ta Colin

 G'day Colin, try a rod through the center stand lugs. Car stands or timber/bricks under each side.
I agree that is a good price. If I were asked to do it I'd be looking at around 220 quid.

You'd charge him £220 to put a rod through the centre stand lugs and balance it on stands/bricks/wood?

No Metalflake. 

It won't work with a steep side....you need level ground.

Hello Colin - care to share the contact details for the wheel build?  I have a couple to get rebuilt and Brands is not too far. Was planning to use Central Wheel but the price is a lot higher.

Hi Colin
Regarding lifting rear end with out stand or jack, I have used rope from joist to give access to both front and rear of my bike.

Following recommendation from members of this forum, I to can highly recommend Mike @ Black Cat Wheels (West Midlands) a good few miles away from you, but check out carriage costs, might still be cost effective, s/steel is much the same price as chrome, and powder coating drum is offered as well, very competitive and uses Devon Rims

The one I found at Brands is Malcolm Simmons 01474 855557.
See advert in OBM Page 38.

My centre stand lugs are missing.

How high will I have to get the bike and do I need to remove mudguard, shockers etc etc

Mine is the crinkle hub, quick brew or something like that.

Hi A10JWO
The book says that you can take the wheel out on it's centre stand, but I never managed. I have to lift it about 4-5 inches higher, undo and take off the four sprocket bolts, unscrew and take the wheel shaft out (RH side), then remove the spacer between brake plate and swingarm leg, and tilt the wheel to get it out.

yes first thing to look for if your out and about with a puncture is a kerb
an inch board under the stand (if you have one) gives more lift but jeez makes a difference to the  power needed to lift it.
"thinks"  could Steve's electric start be made to wind down a centre stand                 *smiley4*

Just read in Roy Bacon's BSA Buyers Guide (typical me, reading a buyers guide after buying!) that, until 1947 BSA mounted a telescopic centre stand.
If you found one like that, coupled to an electric start......might work *dunno*

thanks Morris but I've read the stories about them, they can turn into a motorised pogo stick

Thanks lads  joy to read will buy a bolck and tackle to get the wheel out.. Just got back from the Basildon Jumble YUCK might as well of been a boot sale. Did buy a cup of tea, that was nice. Met a nice older chap from Upminster on a 1960 Gold Flash. Typical BSA owner, very helpful member of the BSA owners club.
