Where does this go?
« on: 28.02. 2019 08:54 »
It’s part of a 1951 plunger A10 but I can’t remember where and I’ve nearly finished the rebuild. Any ideas?

I can't place it. Might it be for the toolbox?

I've recently finished stripping an entire 1954 A10 plunger and I definitely haven't come across that bit... so don't worry?  ;)

Maybe the horn was mounted on it.

With the corner having a radius it looks like it was made from a piece of angle so i doubt it is original.

It feels like a properly finished part to me, the radii are all smooth and symmetrical, not hand filed.

Does it have something to do with anchoring the fwd  end of the rear mudguard to the frame ?

it looks like one hole is elongated --- chain guard or something that needs a bit of lining up *dunno2* my brake light switch bracket has one similar but I made it that way

Hi All,
It used to be a "standard" practical joke to drop a random part or two that "looked right" into the parts boxes
when some poor bugger was rebuilding something complicated,  *eek*
A likely looking shim, odd looking bolt or screw could and would drive the victim nuts  *conf2* *conf2*
and often lead to  *fight* *fight*

Looks like it was custom made from a piece of angle iron due to the radius inside the bend and the sharp outside corner. If it was made in the factory it would probably be a piece of bent flat which would look quite different.
The holes are different sizes too which may give a clue.
