Lucas Cyclometer fitting



With some free time the other day I set about fitting the NOS Lucas Cyclometer to the Humber. It was very straightforward to fit and the only problem I had was that the striker extended too far as on the first fitting there wasn't enough clearance between the inside of the right fork blade and the position it was mounted. After filing down the striker a little with a metal file it was able to pass by the inside of the fork with no problems at all and engage the cyclometer star wheel. I haven't taken it for a ride as yet,but by spinning the front wheel it seems to be working fine. Pictured above are two photos showing how the cyclometer is mounted on the front fork and the striker contacting the star wheel.
