    Chrome Recomendations

    UPDATE... Although I was super happy with every aspect of my chrome experience with The Chrome Shop, my friend had to wait over a month to be told they hadn't started on his. He called (1-26) and they said they were swamped and they were running behind. They got right on it and he received it...

    Need an Elgin EXPERT to answer

    I always ask questions. Problem is, people will say the tank will fit if they can make a sale. We will soon see...Thanks

    Need an Elgin EXPERT to answer

    Thanks for the tip. These tanks flooded the market when the Anniversary edition Columbia came out in the 90's. I believe one company put them out. They are all the same (from what I can see) I just dont know if it will fit :) Too late though, I took a gamble and ordered one. I will report...

    Need an Elgin EXPERT to answer

    I am getting some conflicting info and I need someone to confirm tank fitment on an Elgin. I am done with a re-do of a '37 Elgin. I have concluded that it IS a '37 (MOS 770396) Murray built. My question is, will the tanks sold on ebay fit? There are a ton of the repop tanks for Columbia's...

    Bite your tongue, Adam! :) Actually, I took a long, close look. It is MOS 770396. A friend of mine (self proclaimed Elgin official) said it is a '37. He confirmed what Scott (The Black Monark) said; it was most-likely a base model with no tank or truss rods. It came with surplus forks that...

    Scott, Too dark to take pics last night and I left for work at 5am. I did read the marks on the brake side of the hub. There was a triangle and an "F". Mean anything? Thx

    And you shall have them :) I am beginning to think I may have a been a bit hasty in reading the serial number. Perhaps the code was MOS "7" 0396 rather than MOS 1 0396?

    Scott, There is a name on the hub then a "7" with a letter (A?). I am not at home and cannot remember exactly. The hub says something other than Musselman. The brake is blank/generic. thanks for the help! Kris

    You're forcing me to show my ignorance, publicly :) (I dont understand.) If you're referring to the hubs being Musselman, they aren't. They aren't ND either. They are finned as normal on Elgin. I forget the name though... Thanks for identifying the forks. Kris

    Scott, Also, can you tell me what the forks are off of? They dont look correct to Elgin. (In the pic they are backwards) Thanks, Kris

    I sent you an email with a pic. To answer your question; the serial number is MOS 1 0396. I am under the impression that the number immediately following the manufacturer ("1") is the year. Am I wrong?
