What year did the A7 have that dodgy pogo stick stand?

That was 1947 from frame XA7 101 - XA7 1100 according to parts book.

The earlier rigid frames, before the plunger option came out, were one piece, whereas the later ones had a bolt on rear end.

Allan,
These are my rigid frames, the first is a YA7, the second a ZA7R.
You can see that both have centre stand brackets.
I would imagine that yours have been removed.

That's really interesting Trev, your mounts appear to be separate from the main frame cross member, whereas the one on the photo from Dutch shows the mounting lugs to be part of the cross member.
This will help me with a solution, as I think I can fabricate a mount that could locate in the frame downtube under the cross brace.
Thanks for posting.

 I'd say it's an optical illusion caused by shadows ?

 I wonder how weldable the cross member is, ie;  if it's cast or forged ?

A forging surely?
