Hi Jeff, thanks for the input – that explains what those brackets are. If this was one of my BSA’s, the brackets would make sense (so friction discs etc all under the bottom yoke), but as Brian notes, there’s no hole though the head stem, just a blind hole with a thread at the bottom. If the damper is something different to normal then would be great to have a drawing, otherwise I’ve had a chat with Barry as recommended and he’ll sort me out with an Andre as and when – he’s not making them currently, but we had a nice chat and agreed it’s not urgent. Otherwise, the bike is progressing nicely, albeit slower than I’d hoped,and with luck should be on the road this summer – will upload pics when that glorious day arrives!. All the best, John
