Wanted: parts for my 1945 project please

Post by Adz.F »

Now I have had a chance to take a good look over the parts I have for the 45 W/NG, I would like to put the following list of items that I do not have, in the hope that perhaps one of you may have one tucked away that they would part with please?  I do not have any Ariel parts to swap, but I do have some AMC items which could be offered if desired, or of course regular payment methods!

Opinions on the Indian reproductions most welcome please, I have had Indian tanks both good and bad in the past, and once only a chromed item which was terrible!

Condition not necessarily important as long as I can fabricate/repair.

Items required:

Front (mudguard and) stays
Rear mudguard and stays
(Brake pivot bolt (not currently available at draganfly) got from acme)
Rear stand
Field stand
(4 position lucas switch)
Headlight mask
(Rear half split toolbox (upper))
Panniers and frames
Rear carrier
Rear wheel axle (and bearings)
Rear footrests
Brake and clutch levers( I believe I have the right clamps?)
Saddle


Items i would like as I have the alloy versions (they have had small repairs to them but are flat) so could swap/part exchange:

(Tin chaincase)
Clutch dome for tin chaincases
Tin timing chest/cover

Many thanks

Best regards

Adam

Thank you Johnny, I have been watching that auction site and gathered some parts, but hadn't thought of Russell motors so will make a call tomorrow to see what they have!

Thank you

I may have a pair of rear footrests, but they have been chrome plated a long time ago, a good blast should make them suitable for painting.

As an aside, a pair of tin primary chaincases popped up during last week and I took the plunge. Awaiting the delivery to assess the condition but they looked OK apart from the dome which was holed and pitted, could possibly be salvaged!?
