Steve,

While you're looking at Chapter 4, take a look at Frame #3.

Offhand, the support tube looks OK to me. It does look a little short, but that just may be the angle in the photo. If both footrest-and-shaft-s go fully inside...

The 1949 used the same kickstand as 1948 - this was not changed until 1950. The 1949 support tube does NOT have a spring mounting tab.

This brings up an interesting question about the 1948 frame recall. The Shop Dopes do NOT say what was breaking on the 1948 frames. We've assumed it was the welded fork neck. But perhaps it really was the footrest shaft that was breaking. Or both.

It COULD be that 1949 frames had the reinforcement under the footrest support tube (see Mutt's photo in Frame #3). Mutt - what say ye?

(P.S. Mutt - isn't that photo a 1950 frame with a 1948-1949 seat on it?).


Duane, send 'em on
