Ill bet some old geezzzer has one in his shop.
You just need to find a place that does old stuff.
Ya you're probably right, I'll dig around

I figured the guy who ran these must have done the same, I know I'd feel better with some knurls though

Thanks, I love it. I've got a pile of parts (front brake stuff, new wiring harness, steel & kevlar clutch plates, heavy duty worm gear etc) all ready to go on the bike which I hope gets her road worthy but I won't get a chance to work on her for several weeks, it's killing me.
