What is this steering setup???

Unread post by badbillybiker » Sat May 07, 2016 7:13 pm

Going about building one more library for references on my 1974... I happen to notice after the mechanic re-hooked the steering stuff, and even though it "looks" like a steer-safe system.. iI dont think so... anyone know what the hell the brand or name of this set up is? notice the main pieces are WELDED in place.. I don't think a current steer safe system will bolt around this setup...or will it? Should I just leave it alone...seems to be working...\nOoorrr... is this the precursor to the original steer-safe system and I should view these pieces as "antique" or collectible pieces and parts?\nBBB

Looks like what mine has except mine is not welded. Maybe somewhere along the line someone welded yours ?

asking difficult questions...Why weld?, what is the reason if it originally was a kit...where are the clamps?\nanyone else have their steer stuff welded? btw the center bearing you have is the right one if you havent put it in yet!

This is the current steer safe set up. Looks quite a bit different.\nImage
