RGS speedo brackets
« on: 02.12. 2016 15:31 »
Does anyone know where I could by a pair of the correct speedo brackets (Stainless steel preferably) from? I have found plenty of speedo brackets for sale on the net, but unfortunately none of them are correct for an RGS. The RGS type are angled and are of two part construction.
John.

Hi John,
Have you asked Simon at Barleycorn engineering?
He has the fork top plates and the bolts/rubbers
No pic of the finger bracket so Inot sure if its angled?

John, thank you for your response, but the part number on the Barleycorn website is for Goldies and Super Rockets (65-9111). The RGS item is p/n 65-9167. I will give him a call anyway. I might get lucky.

Found these brackets with the distinctive RGS angle.

Just a bit of trivia, John, the original brackets were standard brackets with the wider extension welded on and a bit of a kick.
