Re: '58 SQ4 REBUILD

Yes, toolbox looks right to me but modified to carry instruments that could only be seen if your head was in the back of your knee! If you can't get another one then a GRP repair using 'woven roving' sheet on the back and epoxy resin will work well, then fill the front and sand flush. When you say t...

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

Seconded. They make the 0.312 springs as their part number HSNO2555.
Mine arrived next day and have made a huge difference when riding two-up.

Cheers,
Bernie

Re: Sq4 1938 frame wanted ansty + Forks as well

Not sure if the back end of the frame you need is similar to the later ones but I have the rear end of a '56 Mk2 surplus to requirements if it helps.
Geometry of tubes is not quite right but the Ansty plunger suspension units are in very good condition. Located in Norfolk UK.

Bernie

Re: SQ4 - stronger rear springs required

New springs in 0.312" wire arrived yesterday! When I removed the cap nuts there was no pressure at all on the underside. One spring had fractured in two places and both had developed a permanent set of about 30mm. After fitting the new ones the bike is sitting much higher and a test ride confir...

Re: Plunger suspension ride height adjustment

I've just had the following quote in from a local firm to make up some springs. Given the likely length of the wait for Drags I'm planning to order some of these and if anyone else would like to add to the order then hopefully the price might go a bit lower. 0.312" compression spring 2 off @ £7...

Re: SQ4 - stronger rear springs required

Thanks - I hadn't spotted that thread - seems to be exactly the same problem.
Will order a pair and wait for that 'long last' email to arrive!

Cheers,

SQ4 - stronger rear springs required

First ride of the year, two up, confirms that the rear springs in my '56 Anstey units are not sufficient for the job. They are original so probably no surprise but I'm wondering what options are available as replacements? Are there also uprated sidecar versions? If so,maybe those would be good for t...
