The 3 W/NG's I've been involved with are that way and look right. One had a complete set of forks NOS done that way. I'll try to check with the manuals I have 3 of different periods but I expect they would all be the same. I'll get back to you but not tomorrow. You can swap them over easily anytime if they are incorrect. Nev
Thanks Nev. I had thought about them being on the outside of the nut, but then they would rattle and Waller, who is usually right, has them on the inside. I notice that my '46 VH, which has the same girder forks, is missing these washers
BTW: I've just checked....the hex nuts do not foul the end of the auxiliary springs.
