Lucas HF1234 Mounting
« on: 30.12. 2017 14:47 »
Does anyone have pictures of how their Lucas Hf1234 Horn is mounted to a late A10 without nacelle?

I messaged a specialist purchased a bracket, they ended up sending me 700168 and the one listed is suppose to be cranked 703349.

  • Last had an A10 in 1976, in 2011 it was time for my 2nd one. It was the project from HELL (but I learned a lot....)

I’ve no idea what is “correct” but I’ve seen some bikes with a spacer instead of the cranked bracket?
New Zealand

1956 A10 Golden Flash EA7-168x, CA10 913x, left BSA together for Liverpool, 5th Dec 1955.

1949 B31 rigid “400cc hot rod” (favourite bike)

1949 C11 rigid, but why!!! (cos it was cheap)

1937 B21, missing parts so mission impossible?

1952 Armstrong Siddeley Whitley for rainy days (with wife).

GL1800 Goldwing not sure why, maybe cos it always starts

The cranked bracket is correct but a spacer will do if there is enough length on the stud.
You could double set your bracket but as long as the horn clears the generator leave well enough alone.

Having the wrong one is one thing, but having contacted the expert of horns (Taff the horns), giving him all the information he needs and to receive the wrong one is another thing.

Ordered a new reproduction cranked bracket.

Thank you for your help and above all providing clear pictures.

Taff reckons that there is no such thing as a cranked bracket.
