First off, get some WD-40 and spray the rear suspension pivot points one by one until you find the one that's making noise. You can then either give it a nice shot of WD-40, or fix it the right way by taking it apart and regreasing the bearing.
If the noise isn't coming from any of the pivot points, it's probably coming from the bottom bracket. Just remove the bottom bracket and clean and regrease the threads. Then you should be good to go.

I have the same bike sitting in my shed. I want to make it into a winter ride (we get a ton of snow here) with studded tires and a front hub motor.

Had he told me about the damage, that'd be one thing, but to have such a surprise wrapped under a inner tube isn't so nice

- deny knowing anything about it and refuse to do anything

I can't say just how nice the Neu will work, but for the price and size it is a very fine motor for the task at hand. The gearbox I am working on is made just for the 1915. Judging by the power, I think it will be the PERFECT motor for the job. My only concern is how well the gears will hold up to the power!

I found they had to be low, because they are 130mm wide.
On that bike I think I would put one above the downtube, and one below it.
MitchJi wrote:VC: Sorry to clog your thread. You asked about Neu so I thought it might be good to get information on all of the potential Neu issues.
Its not to scale and I'm sure it would be tight but it looks like Matt's drive might fit between your swing arms (below the top arm and above the lower arm). With the two inch wide version the aluminum tube would probably fit between the swing arms (left of the right arm and right of the left arm). This might gain you an inch or two in terms of the length of the drive unit.

Also, how much power are you planning for on this bike?
