Subject:165 transmission 1st and 2nd gears missing teeth? Date:Tue Jun 30 15:13:55 2015
Just pulled the 1955 165 out of Dad's basement. Been there for 40 years. He broke the trans while pulling me around the yard on a sled.
3rd gear seems OK, but 1st and 2nd gears seem to be missing some gear teeth and only engage for a partial revolution. Kicking the starter in 1st or 2nd will cause the bike to move forward for a bit, then forward motion stops followed by a gear tooth missing kind of grinding noise.
Trying to figure out what trans parts might be needed to fix this before I split the cases.

Any other info you might gleen from the photo would be interesting. I'm not sure of the original color, I know it is original paint that has faded to a redish tan color.

I have the original seat, but the seat on it looks to be a Harley part??

Also has a high pipe, possibly using the original cigar muffler inverted with a mounting extension bracket.

Can't wait to get this thing running again.
