Type 2 1937-1939 KNUCKLEHEAD Transmission

 

 

THIS TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN SITTING FOR OVER 30 YEARS ON A SHELF IN A WORKSHOP until I scooped it up at an estate sale.  The last bike it was in was a full custom, no messing around, gooseneck chopper circa early 1970’s.  

Due to polishing of the cases, the casting date is no longer readable on the case.  However, the transmission ID number was preserved, along with the fact that it does not have a vent boss cast into the transmission case, so this is definitely a pre 1940 transmission.  The kickstart cover is from an early Panhead and the only thing INCORRECT on this trans.  The kickstart arm is correct.  This a 4 speed transmission, this has the 1-2-N-3-4 shift pattern.

It had also been sitting with oil it, so the inside has been preserved and it shifts through all the gears.  There have been no repairs or welds to cases.   Being a barnfind (or technically a ‘workshop’ find) it has been checked out to ensure all the internals are in order.  

It also comes with the transmission mount plate as seen in the pics.  It also comes with the clutch, the inner primary cover, and everything you see pictured as well.
