Fork Shroud I.D.
« on: 30.11. 2019 16:13 »
I bought some fork shrouds today at the VMCC A/J for my Rigid A10 project, the vendor didn't know what they fitted - do you?

G'day Nourish.
At first glance I'd say early A50/65 had the slotted hole for the h/light.
Cheers

 What is the length of the pre Unit twin shrouds?

P.S.  I can't find any pictures of an A50/A65 that doesn't have the headlight cowl or short headlamp bracket - none with long headlamp brackets/shrouds

The A7/A10 shrouds are 15" long with a round hole. These were also used on the B and M series pre units as well. I think the shorter ones were used on the C11/C12 bikes but not sure about the slot rather than a round hole for the headlamp bolt. Might they be Triumph?

I think from a C25 Barracuda or B44 from around 1967.
