Magnesium Vincent Parts

One of the other threads made me ponder what ex-works parts were in magnesium. The only one I can think of are the Elektron Lightning brake backing plates.

Any others?

Magnesium

Did you get any answers? I think brake plates were the only parts, but Vincent clearly allowed for magnesium motors, whence F10/AB for a 10(00cc) A(lly) B(icycle). I think Patrick Godet stamps his motors F13/MB to indicate that they are 13(00cc) M(agnesium) B(icycles).

None but yours. That must be the only items, although are KVF TT mag bodies magnesium?

I believe some mag bodies were magnesium, although I've never seen one. I have a 2MTT and a base-mounted TT mag, and both are ally.
