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
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.
