Re: Nearly there

Don't think they do stainless (may be wrong) but think they traditionally fill a steel tube with sand, heat, bend and then chrome. Sounds simple in principle, but like flying a Tigermoth, easy to do, neigh on impossible to do well.

Re: 8inch front brake

BSA_WM20, any chance of a photo to show the detail? The rear brake has a flange on the plate that is drilled to accept the hook on the end of the spring, the front has none. How is the hub end of the spring anchored in your modified front arrangement?

Re: b25ss timing cover bung plug

that section of the cavity between the inner & outer cover should be dry. I think it is the gearbox side of the wall, so it will be wet, the breather is forward of the wall...the bottom of the bung is just below the top of the kickstart oil seal, so about right for some sort of level.
