The seat bracket is quite simple and attaches via a hole in the frame ( on the HT anyway, I know nothing about the HS)
Hopefully here's a pic..

Mine was missing so I welded some flat bar to a seat frame

Thanks for the pic Dave. Mine seems to have a different mounting on the frame, two lugs that look like tank mounting points... you can see them on this photo.

unless those ARE actually the tank mounts, I am away from the bike at the minute as it's in a relative's garage though I recall the tank being loose, so I will double check on my next visit... you can also see the period-style gaffer taped-on fan belt for the passenger!!!

I'm thinking that those mounts were characteristic of the sidecar framed version, so as not to weaken the centre chair mounting point by having a drilled hole through the frame so close to it, in which case some sort of L-shaped seat bracket will fit better

The rear tank mount is a single hole. As the HS had a larger scrambles seat, the lugs are probably for that. With so few HS sidecar frames, I doubt there was a special seat setup?

that'll explain it then, thanks again Dave, i'll just have to fashion a support for the seat but not too tricky.

Congratulations with your HS framed trials machine, now the value went up to 6000pounds?

The 2 luggs you mentioned are in fact of the larger petroltank, (normaly these are removed on HS).

An other question; is there a stamping in the lugg between tank and saddle? (normaly only when the useles tankluggs are removed).

Thanks Adrie, I will make sure it's added to my policy at that value, and will check for the stamp between saddle and lugs when next with the bike. Weekend probably.

Thanks for all your help gentlemen!

You didn't get an answer to the "hotter" plug. More load = colder plug. HOTTED motors run COLDER plugs. Ie High compression high revs and high loads for longer periods.. If you are in any doubt run a colder plug tillit gives problems. this will usually happen if you ride slow or idle the motor a lot. Nev
