On my way to Thrill on the Hill 2014, I heard noise from the driving belt at low speed. The next day, at the celebration of the 100th birthday of the Pickersleigh Road Factory party, I had the opportunity to discuss about that with some other owners of Three Wheeler. The wear of the rear wheel aluminum sprocket seemed responsible of the noise.

On my way back to Belgium, I took an appointment with my dealer Brands Hatch Morgans to have the sprocket replaced in September. They had to cancel it, because the part was unavailable at that time.

I try my chance by sending a letter to the factory to claim a warranty replacement. Itís now an open secret that some have got some and even for happy few steel ones. Thatís incredible how the post services are bad in England. My letter must have been lost, because I didnít receive any reply from the factory.

I was again being left alone with the problem. Till the day I met with a friend who is engineer. He told me that one can be done in far better quality materials. With the help of sophisticated computer programs, the design and all the calculations for strength were done. He opted for top grade of steel with an additional finish treatment to increase strength and smoothness. By the same way he decided to lighten it as much as possible to almost match the weight of the aluminum standard sprocket.

It took time but the final product seemed to me outstanding by the incredibly high level of quality and finish. I put it back to my Three Wheeler. I went to Brands Hatch Morgans Breakfast Club of 18th of July by doing five hundred happy miles in one day. The sprocket looked as I hadnít done any mile with it and as it would last forever in silence.

As the construction calculations have been done and the sprocket has been used successfully: any possibility for others to purchse one?
I hate the squeeking noise from the rear and would spend a couple of £ to solve the problem

Your sprocket looks great!

Very glad you got it sorted. It looks a wonderful piece of craftmanship.

I'm also interested as the weight of the factory steel sprocket puts me off. I have been considering going down the SuperMax route but this one looks like it will be a good, reasonably lightweight solution. thumbs
