What are the proper dimensions of lower headlight brackets F86/2?
Mine appear too short for some reason, positioning the headlight an inch or so too low.

MSVH Y3 my handsome,
What lathe is that in the background also what attachment is that cranking handle attached to, looks a very interesting workshop, but then you Canadians have space and Dan Smith's is amazing, no wonder he spends so much time there with all those toys to play with?

I too had a temporary brainstorm and thought I could change camps but more interested in doing the "A" Comet. So this magnificent 1919 Sunbeam I'm wanting to move on 8 HP with matching sidecar 996cc all working with authentic patina but was restored may years ago in America. Sorry for hijacking, if I knew how I would put it into a new thread.

You should change makes in your workshop occasionally Marcus I cant believe all the tricks I have had to learn or dream up on this Douglas project
I suppose it depends on whether the workshop is a means to an end or an end in its own right I think I am 50:50 or put another way if its raining its not a disaster but if I am in my car on a good road I am most unhappy I am not on my bike.
