I had a fun surprise today - I found my old series IIa that I sold some 30 odd years ago! I recognized it from like two blocks away. Ha! Good to see it's still on the road and looking respectable. 🙂 There's a few original pics of it at post#1670 on the previous page.

Those tiny export wheels look amazing on it.
Everyone wants Modulars/HD with 235+ on them, but skinny little 'cycle' wheels look great and very period/functional.
The only thing I didn't like was that the tires themselves were in extremely poor condition. They were obviously very old and had deep checks and cracks in them. Pretty dumb to be trusting ones life (and others lives) on public roads with rubber like that.
 
Lean? What lean?!

Ive seen much worse and arent they designed with a lean anyway..?

Measure from the hub to the wheel arch on both sides (on level ground with steering straight).
How different are they?
 
Can you narrow it down? Bulkhead fitted on the wonk, packing put in to sort a symptom, chassis not straight?
More likely either a worn chassis bush, or spring bush. Doesn't have to be the front, could be the opposite corner at the back. Tired springs too. Ultimately the sprung centres can only be in one height, it's whether they sag, or if there is a weakness in the bushings that allows the spring to flex more, that effects how the body sits on them.

Thanks, Sandy; time to get out a tape measure.
