Just seen your post. Do you still need help on the spring stand and legshields? Where are you?
The ks return spring is the same as in some Royal Enfield albion gearboxes. I bought one at Glamis 39th Scottish Vintage Vehicle Extravaganza in the summer from a guy who had several but I don't know who he was.
I have two sets of leg shields but neither in great condition. Keep in touch for when I've got one set in to good order or do you just need a pattern to get some others adapted?
The rear stand is a bit of a problem but not insolvable. The pivot forgings could be made up from 8mm steel plate with welding. The legs and cross pieces can be made by a sheet metal worker. The shoulder bolts can still be got in imperial sizes. You'd need to make a pattern from an original from someone who has one on a bike (like me). I could photograph and dimension it if you decide to go down this road.

Hi thanks for your reply and info, will look out for a enfield return spring, i now have 1 leg shield which could be copied from, if i had a pattern i could make a rear stand myself , i live near Kings Lynn which is a fair way from you, my F45 runs quite well gets gears brakes work needs paint work wiring and the bits i am missing. I have too many vehicles (toys) so dont get much time at the moment to work on the FB Thanks again John .

I'll photograph my stand with some dimensions. I don't think I can add pictures to this forum can I? How can you let me have an email address to send them?
