Yes. The bike is a 1978 anniversary edition with original gold wheels.

I have the instructions still, Ill quote the
part about the spacer, as I cant seem to find a way to post a scan.
it says put smaller diameter against the bearing.
On looking at this spacer, I realise that this is the spacer that I shortened, I had to take 1/16" off the length of the thin end that goes against the bearing. Probably just a fault of my swingin arm ..
but something to keep in mind.
Yer right Iron Mike I remember the Lesters too, not sure they made a wheel setup for the drum or were later for the disc setup
Riverdog thanks for the excerpt much appreciated.

Mick thanks for the pics. Looks just like mine, my only question is your pictures seem to contradict the instructions from river dog. His said thin collar against the bearing. Which would lead the wider collar against the backing plate. I would think that’s correct just so your not creating drag by spanning across the bearing onto the outer race with the shoulder, like iron mike said..:thoughts

riverdog may well be correct. I was new to these parts when I made these pics. As long as the thin part actually fits into the bearing. I would have tried both ways.
