I am just starting the process of restoring a 1948 Harley 125S. I am sure I will have lots of questions, but the first one I ran into was with the frame ( it is an "X" frame).
When dis-assembling the foot peg assembly (seems like quite a 'kluge' and I am not sure if it is stock or has been modified... one of the fasteners that joined the tubes together was a long bolt with the end bent over !?!? :(...
Looking at the illustration in the spare parts catolog it shows the attach bracket for the side stand but I assume that is attached to a shaft that passes thru the tube welded to the frame. My problem is that the tube welded to the frame appears to have been broken off. (See attached pic) and it looks like someone added a spacer to make up for the missing length.
I would like to know what the overall length of the welded tube is, so I can replace it. It would also be great if someone had a photo of the stock foot peg assembly.... or better yet, is there anyone in the St. Louis, MO area with a bike I could look at?
Thanks in advance for your help. Looking forward to continued discussions!
