Hi Anna, what are your thoughts on repairing it? Where are you located? Thanks
... I would not feel comfortable with a welded repair however expert the welder.
Ian you have no idea on welding cast steel weld can be better then the original steel the art is getting the right amount of heat in to the material I have been welding since I was 16 that 51 years you can tell me anything about welding I started at a shipyard back in 1967 welding Gas Mig Tig And Arch welding and Hot riveting and forging plus black smithing, I can make this stand better then new and I challenge anyone to do any better, Yours Anna J
Hello Kevin Were in East Yorkshire at Howden Not Far from Goole Where SHIPS were Built just email me and I send my address yours Anna J
My Mercury stand broke like this a few years ago. So, when RGM introduced their new side stand I bought one and was most impressed with the quality and finish of it. I've had this fitted for over 5 years and can recommend them.
Hello I done one even better then any Norton stand you can buy I fitted a ZZR Chrome Stand And it will not twist or move As I made a Stainless steel plate to fit at the back of the engine and fits to the engine plates and bottom frame tube and a stainless steel clamp in rubber to the frame ti will nos shift any were cost me only 25 quid and Not the rip off prices Yours Anna J
Can you post photos, Anna? £25 sounds good, but another 3 hours of skilled labour to design and fabricate the brackets could easily come to well over £150 for other mortals, with no guarantee of success.
... following her suggestion I used such a stand for my ES2. I made the brackets from an odd alloy engine plate I had lying about.
Hello all I cannot show you any photos as I am trying to use this smart phone but there On the NOC web site as this. Topic as come up before now yours Anna j

Is the bracket made of cast iron or cast steel.
There is a world of difference between the two when it comes to welding.
This is the reason that Norton Matchless Divison, designed and produced a much stronger, wider and thicker prop stand lug, with an 035 part number in 1968. Norvil, sell the better and stronger prop stand lug. The reason that this bracket lug can break is that some owners will try to start their twins on the prop stand. These prop stand lugs would break all the time. Many a frame that has been returned from North America has had that lug welded to the lower frame rail.
It would be so much safer for you to buy a new side stand bracket.
My side stand (on a ES2) let go once and the bike fell in top of a brand new Triumph something-or-other. Not much damage - if any - to the Triumph but a smashed headlamp, headlamp rim and reflector for the Norton.
You have to ask "what's it worth?"
