The BAKER 4-Speed Transmission


 

Haslett, MI May 1, 2017 - The introduction of the Knucklehead and the 4-speed in 1936 marked an epoch in the history of American motorcycles. Many consider the period of 1936-1984 the holy grail of Harley-Davidson. To carry on that legacy, BAKER Drivetrain developed the BAKER 4-speed Transmission.

 

The external architecture of the BAKER cast 4-speed transmission case was modeled after factory cases to capture all of the details and character of the original design. BAKER Drivetrain has made many functional upgrades to address the shortcomings of the original design like leaks, serviceability, and durability. 

 

The loose rollers on the main drive gear were replaced with a radial ball bearing. The bronze bushings on the gear set were replaced with caged needle bearings. BAKER Drivetrain added a provision, hidden in the back of the case, for an electronic speedo but retained the traditional worm gear speedo provision on the front of the case. The stock Fred

Flintstone shift detent was replaced with a snot-slick linear ball bearing detent for that smooth ‘snick-pop’ shift quality that BAKER customers expect.

 

The BAKER 4-speed transmission is available with a ratchet top or jockey top cover and has three different case finishes available: classic raw finish, wrinkle black finish or polished finish.   BAKER offers three variations of the shift drum and offer four different lengths in main shafts. All BAKER 4-speeds come standard with the BAKER Klassic Kicker Gears.

LAST DAY TO SUPPORT THE BUILD PROGRAM

Today is the last day to support the Build Milwaukee program. A portion of all BLACK HORIZONS sales will be donated to help support them.

http://blackhorizons.bigcartel.com/

BUILD is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to pairing teams of high school students with bike-building mentors in a collective effort to learn valuable life and interpersonal skills all the while restoring vintage motorcycles. During a BUILD season, from January to June, each participating team is given a vintage motorcycle by BUILD to work on, along with mentors, in the team’s designated space, with the end goal of racing the bike in one or more AHRMA vintage motorcycle races.

Bornfree 8 Knucklehead Wallpaper

Sometimes you have to look back to look ahead. We're wrapping up the Born Free 9 bike this week in hopes of getting it to our show this weekend, The Congregation Show, we're putting on with Dice Magazine. With that, we created a desktop wallpaper of the bike we built last year for Born Free to remind us of where we've come from. The bike was shot at Camp North End in Charlotte, N.C. for a recent Dice Magazine Issue. Camp North End is the same location we're holding The Congregation Show.

We're so stoked to show you the Born Free 9 bike. We really hope you like it, but more importantly, hope to see you at our show or at Born Free 9. Enjoy the wallpaper!
