Looking for a Real nice 1971 HS40 Tech recoil shroud. The recoil needs to be oriented like a 1971 Rupp
without the stud/ nut lighted version. Willing to trade the 1970 fender I have on for-sale plus
cash plus shipping costs. I do not need any ID tag.
Much appreciated if you could help...
NOS 1970 Rupp rear fender. Was never chrome plated from the factory.
I glass beaded it and applied primer to preserve it. $68.00 shipped to you
if interested. Check or money order is fine.
On the postal money order issue. Purchased an HS40 several years ago with a Postal MO. Seller would not ship it. Nor respond to several requests.
What got my issue resolved quickly was writing to the attorney general of the state the seller is from. CC the seller. The engine showed up a couple...
As far as the spokes and hub go, most likely they are zinc plated not chromed. back in the day they used a very hard wire material to make the spokes. When they got plated, they would have to bake them afterwards to remove the hydrogen from the wire. IF they did not, they could snap.
Visited the cart racing shop that is going to bore my 71 HS40 block once my ARC rod shows up. He showed me some

could determine build timeframes. Not sure where that ended up or if there was any rime or reason to them
I do have that exact frame. I'll dig it out and see what numbers are on it. It...
The handlebar mounts are welded to a plate then that plate bolts to the top of the fork plate like in your picture.
That tells me that it is a late 68 or early 69 build. Sometime in 69 they got rid of the handlebar plate and welded
the bar mounts directly to the fork plate. There should be a...
Nice find. 1969 Lil Indian 7000. Last year for the Briggs 5HP. Has the original 2 speed set-up, brake caliper and brake light switch.
The 7000 was the lighted version of the Grand Series. Even the correct green for the 7000. There should be a battery box
mounted below the seat. Where the...
