1964 4T Cruiser 89 Parts required

Post  fulmar88 on Wed May 30, 2018 11:24 am

I am on the rebuild part of my Cruiser 89 'Preservation'. The bike has been completely dismantled to the last bolt and, as it is too good to restore, is being rebuilt after cleaning/preserving and bits (seals/bushes) replaced where necessary/missing. To that end I am in need of the following (good used preferably or new if necessary):

1. Green front brake cable
2. Green clutch cable
3. Green throttle cable (4T-is it different to 2T?)
4. White faced wipac ammeter
5. Air filter mesh/screen and outer circular cover (same as Falcon 87). I have the rare 4T angled part.
6. Rear number plate and reflector.
7. Headlight lens/reflector.
8. Square finned rectifier and through bolt (the bolt was the only bolt to shear during the whole stripdown)..

Perhaps someone has discarded bits from their restoration which still have some life in them and could be put to further use. Please comment or PM me with your parts/prices.

Many thanks, Steve.

Air filter

Post  piston 197 on Thu May 31, 2018 7:38 pm

Air filter now on Ebay item No 401543204780 , have a look at this and tell me what you think ?? seems to be a Hybrid between the filter box used on a Cruiser 89 and the rectangular air filter used on other 4T twins ( Greeves, Enfiel Turbo Twin etc.?)
Not got a clue what it originally came from, never seen one before ?

John,

I would have said that it is a home made job to enable a 4T to be fitted to a Cruiser 80; the alternative solution I have seen is a Cruiser 80 with the pressed steel rear frame cut away to enable a standard Villiers air cleaner to be fitted. The original FB Cruiser 89 air inlet was much better made and included a small bracket to enable one of the standard S25 air filter clips to be used to ensure a close fit to the carb. The original inlet was tapered in two dimensions - the example shown does not have the vertical taper. However, it might of course been an original fitting on a low volume bike manufactured other than by FB. Sandy

If you don't get the cables you need try JJ Cables. He used to have green.

Definitely not home made, nicely spot welded etc and chromed as well, proper elements in the rectangular filter box as well, i have never seen this on any 250cc twin,so i cannot positively identify it, again if you were fitting a 2/4T engine into a Cruiser 80 could you not use the proper 89 filter,( assuming you had one ?)
Still the jury is out on this one, it is on Ebay more in the hope of identifying it than anything else
