G'day Vincent
The hoop is 3/4". When I bought my bike it had a home made stay and was all wrong. Took ages to find the correct one, had to buy half an A7 in the end.
Cheers TC

Many thanks, I also have been looking for a while to no avail. The pictures and diameter will help. Have made various stays in the past and I am confident I should be able to knock off what is needed for this one. Likely will need to make a chainguard too as have no success finding one either.
Cheers, Vincent

Vincent, there are two chainguards, a top run and a bottom.

Have attached more photo's. If anyone is interested send me a personal message and I will provide a detailed description with further photo's if required. The bike appears to be fairly complete and will make a great project for restoration. As I said previously, any reasonable offer will be considered and I am sure an agreeable price for both parties can be reached. It would be a shame if this bike was not put back on the road.
Any further comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks Russ.

This project is now SOLD.
I would like to thank all members who contributed comments with regards to the value of this bike which made it very easy to reach an amicable price for both parties.
The bike went to a fellow forum member.

Thanks all,
Russ

OOH Musky, you must have missed a couple of good hints. And sorry Wazza, when I showed MY wife the photos, her reply was,"yep, that looks right up YOUR alley".
Jools, he who hesitates.....
Anyhow she's going to make a great stable mate for my other rigid A7. This wont be too soon as I have just put a 53 plunger in the workshop (photo's soon).
Huge thanks to Russ for helping to get this bike and me together, and your MATE will not be dissapointed, god bless.

Cheers all Thomas

G'day Thomas, this is great news that you've bought the A7, it's gone to a good home.  *smile* Going by the high standards of your restos I'm looking forward to seeing the finished job, but please don't park it next to my A7!  ;) And BTW your wifey is a keeper. LOL
Cheers Peter.

Thanks Peter, I have a bit of work to get this finished, but it's a great start to a 47 long stroke, most of the parts are there and I had the correct headlight.
Here's a photo before I park it up for a bit, while the next one gets the resto treatment.
Cheers Thomas.

Thomas that looks great. A vast improvement already on the "parts" we dragged out of the shed. I will show the photo to my mate, (Ken) and I am sure he will be impressed.
Thanks again Russ
