Swinging arm air filter info please ?
« on: 08.03. 2012 15:48 »
Wonder if a forum member know Who manufactured the above for B.S.A ?
Would they have a manufacturers transfer & is this still available ?
Or even a picture would help ?

Best Wishes ,
Steve ...

Steve,
               I think that the plunger/rigid air filters were made by Vokes.
The swinging arm type is just a gauze so I imagine it was an in house job.
Don't know if there were ever transfers applied.
