Can't help at the moment with  strap width but lots of supplies possible RGM Norton, Andover Norton, Norvil, NOC Spares

and the usual tank suppliers  just put a web search in for Norton petrol tank suppliers, like the Tank Shop Norton Racing Parts and of course EBay!

 

Cheers

Hi Tom, I have just had a strip sheared myself to make a new one, it is exactly 1" (25.4mm) wide.

if you look on page 4 of 'cycle parts' in the Heavyweight section of the NOCShop the whole unit is for sale at £40.00.

As John says the rubber only is available from some of the normal suppliers.

Regards

Dick

Hi Tommy, no I don't think that they will have closed yet, the SPARES Dept. is manned by volunteers so 9 days isn't unusual and besides they have their own presents to wrap. Also the Christmas rush will add a couple of days.

Typical!   A question is asked, by someone wanting to make a part, so Superwoman says "Why not make it yourself?".

Sorry for late answer but finally went and checked. Flu kept me indoors. My Manx has a one and a half inch wide strap, looks like it is an original one. I usually cut a piece of a cheap sleeping pad to have under the strap.

Hello, John, there is nothing super in making a tank alloy strap  you just need some good tooling, and commonsense   yours  anna j
