48 125 Battery

Postby stans48s » Wed Feb 27, 2019 3:05 am

Does anyone make a battery shell that looks like the original batteries of the 40's that will hold a small 6 v battery inside? I am a long way from needing a battery, but would like to know what's out there. If not what is a good size new battery that will fit the battery holder for my 48 ? Thanks, Stan

I got mine for my 48 from Red Raven products it has the Green logo on it. They had the best price I could find.
I'm very happy with everything I've got from them and they ship very fast.

Duane Taylor makes exact reproduction shells for most, if not all years.

BATTERY SHELLS:
YES I HAVE BEEN MAKING THEM FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS AND IT WAS AN INTERESTING/TIME CONSUMING PROJECT TO DEVELOP A PROCESS THAT WOULD MAKE AN EXACT DUPLICATE OF ALL THE LETTERING AND OTHER FINE DETAIIL.
THANKS TO PERRY RUITER FOR LENDING HIS "FAIRLY GOOD" ORIGINAL BATTERY TO MAKE THE FIRST MOULD . ALL OTHERS FOUND HAD TOO MANY CRACKS, CHIPS, SCRATCHES , ETC. TO USE AS THE PROCESS WILL COPY EVERY DEFECT.
LAST YEAR, I FOUND AN ALMOST PERFECT DEAD BATTERY WHICH IS NOW USED FOR COPY.

THE CASTING PROCESS IS FINE TUNED CURRENTLY AND REQUIRES A VACUUM FOR THE MEDIUM TO ELIMINATE/PREVENT DEFECTS.
THAT SAID, THERE IS ONLY ONE SHELL MODEL FOR THE BATTERY OPERATED "HUMMER" BIKES.
HARLEY LOGO PAINTED GREEN FOR 48-54 MODELS
HARLEY LOGO PAINTED RED FOR THE 55 AND LATER MODELS.

ANOTHER SHELL I HAVE MADE:
BAR AND SHIELD LOGO AS USED ON THE BIG TWINS WITH NO COLOR MARKING. MUTT WOULD KNOW WHEN THESE WERE FIRST USED AND HIS COMMENT IS REQUESTED.

Here's mine. But I guess it's the wrong color? Should it be green, according to Mr. Taylor?

The logo should be green for your 48. If you want to do a recolor advise and I will tell you how to do it the easy way.
