Could anyone please help with a brake arm and spring to suit a 1930 Norton 500?
If anyone could help with an accurate drawing so I can look into getting them made I’d be very grateful. Even better would be if anyone has a spare they would sell ??
I’ve attached a couple of pictures taken from a similar machine showing the parts required.
Many thanks Ian
I bought several of these springs from Martyn Bratby last time I was in the UK. Give him a call
I have an arm so I will get some measurements over the weekend and send them to you.
That would be brilliant, thank you.
I'll contact Martyn regarding the spring.
You didn't say what model you have.
Attached are a couple of photos of the one on my 1930 Model 20. Is this what you want measured?
Thanks for posting the pictures, that is exactly the brake arm i'm looking for. Any diemensions would help so I can try and get one manufactured as I don't think i'll ever find an original.
My bike is also a 1930 Model 20, I've attached picture.
Many thanks Ian
Copy attached. If any of the details are not clear send me a personal message and I'll respond.
Thanks ever so much for the diagram, I think every dimension is there so I should be able to get one made.
Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to produce the drawing, it really is appreciated.
An update on the brake arm.
Using the drawing Ian Richtsteig kindly provided I’ve had a go at making a brake arm.
I’m not an engineer but hopefully it will look and work OK. The spring was an ebay purchase from a seller in Slovakia. I’ve attached a couple of pictures, thanks again Ian for all your help.
