Hello every one, First off I do not quite know where I fit in here as I am in to Military Bikes!!! Any clues?

Any way, for now I have a question, one of my BSA Airborne bikes has (as they normally do) a civilian bike sprocket and crank set. However I do not have a clue what it is from.
It looks to have stamped in the sprocket 3 cannons. Dose any body have any idea as to what it is from???

Hi, the crank is from a Royal Enfield. I think they made some military bikes.

Royal Enfield made plenty of normal bikes (and Motorbikes of course).

Ok thanks, at least I know where the sprocket came from. Won't throw it away then!

So where can I get some chain from & is it an imperial size, or is there only one size standard as R really don’t know!!!

Chain is normal. Ask for 1/8" chain at your bike shop.
