Does anyone know who the seller of these part is? Item is posted as new but appear to be used. There's no passing email contact info with ebay.

They look reasonably correct I am not sure what the chocolate finger is on the outside of the brake pivot is
I made mine to the drawings that Eddie Stevens did in his in MPH about 25 years ago the ends of the footrests would not be acceptable on the track today it's just clever reuse of standard components a little turning and brazing a very good and adaptable design

I had a batch of the plates CNCd several years ago. Both sides, plates only. are in stock. I have no idea what I paid at the time so if you are interested let us haggle. I do not have the footrests etc. or the cylindrical spacer to go behind the kick starter side plate but that is easy to make..

"chocolate finger is on the outside of the brake pivot" Not sure what you are saying there.
I'm trying to get a contact number or email address to get firsthand information from seller. Does anyone recognize the name John Weeden?

The shift lever is missing a 3rd adjusting hole for the G79 and the G108/1 usually have another hole. The rest of the shift linkage looks correct. Not sure about the right side foot peg, but mostly looks the part. Given the way the pegs were made I suppose there would be variations.

I think John Weeden was a reasonably successful amateur motorcycle racer who at some point became a motorcycle restorer, I think he operated in the Midlands of the UK and quite a few of his restorations went through the hands of Atlantic Motorcycles, cue for Albervin to comment.

Yes, there is a little about him on the internet, he restored a Black Shadow sold by Bonhams a few years ago, it would seem that he has now retired and is living in Spain.
