    Did they make two different shifter lengths? Or did my aftermarket tanks put the gate holes too high? Paps I'm gonna send you some pictures tomorrow, lets see if anyone knows whats going on. I bought a old stock shifter and aftermarket tanks, the shifter doesnt go all the way to the shift gate .

    If you mean the shift lever that pivots on the tanks then yes, they are different for '37-'46 and from '47 up. The shape is different and the bends are different locations.

    Hello And thanks for the warm welcomes.
    I have a 1921 board tracker (pictures in the new members section).
    After stumbling across this "Share The Wealth of Your Knowledge" thread, I went back through my collection of historical photographs and construction pictures I took during the 5 year build and have stuff that might be of use to other members. Most parts I've salvaged and/or made and the processes might be useful to others.
    I've got 50+ years of machine shop and foundry work under my belt and am happy to pass along what I've learned.

    Metal working: Embossing sheet metal parts for a more "factory made" look.
    Metal finishing: How to make newly machined parts look 90 years old.
    Weathering: Tricks for a vintage, not museum piece look.
    What they used to do: Various components that are modern "old school" and available if you know where to look.
    Personal touches: How riders modified their bikes to suit themselves.
    "Re-purposing": Making hard-to-find parts out of easy-to-find materials.

    I'm still learning my way around the site so am unsure as to where to post this kind of stuff.

    The correct mounts would look like this Goat.
