I think I have some old studs from my A rebuilds as I recall making all new ones. I am out right now but will try and remember this afternoon to have a look and see what is in the "A leftovers" bin!

Hi GregDoes anyone have any information on brake and clutch levers on the handlebars of a series A ie. make, type etc also type of decomp lever? Picture would be great??
It is DEFINITELY 7/16" BSF and the holes in the cases should be 1 3/16 " deep +- 1/16". PM on its way!Ok with regards to the two HRD cover/inspection plates that go over the clutch center and the magneto pinion drive.......should the background be black or the same burgundy/red as the top/bottom of the fuel tank..........? Also with the alloy oval spacers that go either side of the gearbox mounts, I have one original here which is 1/2 inch thickness, should the bottom one be the same. If so I am missing one and I will get some made. They will be made from solid alloy and I will drill/tap the small locator dowel using a short shank bolt arrangement rather than the original cast in dowel which is fragile, this original one is broken off. If anyone needs any let me know as I will probably make up a small batch of 10................Also are any of you in need of the cylinder hold down studs and long matching 3/8 CEI tube nuts to go with same, as I might get a small batch of these made soon as well................Can someone tell me what the lower thread that goes in the upper case is, is it 7/16 Whitworth..............Any help much appreciated...............Cheers........Greg.
They are castings brazed on the tube.Thanks John, On your lower stay/stand at the front where it bolts to the bottom of the forks, are they small machined castings that are brazed into the tube, or are the tubes just pressed flat and holes drilled through. Cheers...............Greg.
