Comet clutch

I have a 1953 Comet engine and gearbox that I am going to build into a one off special, there is a fair amount of work required on the engine, and I need to keep costs to a minimum. I need to replace the entire Burman clutch and have been unable to find the original parts necessary, I therefore would like to use a modern replacement such as Honda. I believe this has been done before and need to find out which clutch has been used?.
I have managed to find a new Burman sprocket which I plan to rivet onto a suitable modern basket, with modifications to the inner to suit the Burman input shaft.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Running the Vincent H.R.D. Owners Club online forum costs money, and like other organisations, we have annual software and hosting costs which are significant. These costs are paid for entirely by the Members of our Club. Sadly, we don't have a magic money tree!

If you're viewing this annoying messsage, you have been identified as a regular non-Member user of our online forum for some time, and we’d really appreciate it if you could give some thought to joining the Club to offset some of the costs mentioned previously.
