I am looking for a new drive for my 1950 Rigid- which has the smaller 1/2 inch diameter spindle.

I have noticed one for sale, could anyone identify it as a driver for a small diameter spindle? The actual design looks just right but it may be that the same design was produced with holes for the 9/16 as well as 1/2 spindles.

Unfortunately the seller cant tell me.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks

Alan

Thanks Mick. It looks like one from a later model. The one I posted a picture of looks almost the same as one I already have so I know what it looks like, what I dont know is if this design was made with different sized holes. I was hoping someone would say the design is unique to the smaller diameter spindle and then I would buy it. 

Thanks again

Have you thought of contacting Hans Kreuzen? - he is pretty expert on the differences between the early and later D1s.

Sorry for the late response. I think I contacted him before about this but I believe his bikes dont have speedometers. I understand early export models didnt have them. Alan
