Found this this after noon in my T parts/ toolbox , of course I hadto replace the broken screw , that's who I am . But what does it go to ? Thanks.
I'm sayin' it's from a motorcycle. That's what the mount would suggest.
It's not for an Indian motorcycle.
Cheapo European cars of the 50s and 60s had horns like that. 4cv Renault has a bumper bracket mounted horn that looks similar although the Renault horn was plated.
Definitely older than 60's Id think , not sure how to test it though , looks good inside but I'm not sure 6v or 12.
I have one or two like that one. I always assumed they hung from the cross bar in front of the radiator on circa 1928-32 autos. Try six volts, if it sounds week, then 12 v. I think that most all were 6 volts.
I have one very close to that one on our 1931 Chev-o-wreck...! ie: Chevy....
This one was mounted on the headlight tie bar of my Model T a long time ago.
It says HEINZE ELECTRIC CO. LOWELL MASS. U.S.A. on the back. It works on 6 Volts.
Nice , mine is completely unmarked unfortunately
Im not sure, but I think that is the emblem used on the early Harley horns. I have about a dozen different horns in this style. All the covers are different makes and names, but the covers will interchange from one horn to the other.
It's not a Chevy.
Thats a Harley Davidson horn off a knucklehead of the early thirties. Saw one sell on eBay on 9 Dec 14 for $669 with 17 bids. Its in my 'Favorites' but I don't know how to include it as an attachment here. I have one just like the one that sold but mine WORKS and is LOUD and has the 3 fasteners holding the front to the back. The only difference between the eBay horn/mine with yours is the embossed rectangle in the exact center is verticle on yours and horizontal on 'ours'.
Thats embossed 'wings' on each side of the 'bar' and is uniquely HD
George , thanks , could you tell me the proper way to connect to test it ? Thank you . Travis.
It is a common accessory replacement horn for early Indians or Harleys. I have seen several. Here is one now.
That looks like it , would like to hear it though , maybe I can figure out how it hooks up. Looks really good inside .
I had one like that on my 1948 full dress Harley 74cc--- back in the day. I was 17 and had a job repairing lawn mower engines. Joe
Travis, Just cut 2 insulated wires to length. Strip all 4 ends. There are 2 terminals on the back of your horn. Connect a wire -wrap around-each of the terminals. Now touch the other ends of the 2 wires to the terminals of a hot 6 volt battery.
