I think Andrew is right, a new repro is the easiest bet for an easy to get reflector. I had an early villiers one nickel plated, it looks good but has a slight yellow tinge when lit, it cost £15 at niphos metal finishers (Crewe Cheshire)

Hi Adrian. You could try bolting it up with no springs just to check that the arm stays free. You can then measure what free play is left, if play is less than that of the compressed spring you will need to make up shims to suite. I seem to remember shimming rocker arms end float is part of the &quo...

This 1928 model D seems to have a 1930 frame number. I wonder what those in the know make of the date of this bike.

I paid £1.25 per meter, so it was similar to vintage motor spares as already posted. I did get his card but seem to have lost it in the mud. If it turns up I will post it later.

Re: fabric covered wiring

I visited an auto jumble at Garstang yesterday and found a guy selling fabric covered wire. Thanks for all the helpful comments. Keith.

Thanks for the replies on this one. I have had the reflector nickel plated, it is more than good enough with 6v electrics as slight yellow tinge is not noticeable. I have had reports of cloth covered wire being available from the odd auto jumble but as yet I have no contact details. Cheers guys. Kei...

fabric covered wiring

Hi guys. Two queries. First, does anyone know of a supplier of fabric covered wire or fabric sleeving for the rewiring of a vintage wiring system.
Second, can anyone recommend someone to re-silver a reflector.
North West UK if possible. Thanks. Keith.

Hi Keith. With so much at stake any old mudguard firmly attached will get you to the point where you can move forward with the registration process. Originality can be sorted out later, if you lose the reg number it will be very difficult to retrieve the situation. I can bring you a none hinged arie...
