switch mounts
« on: 11.05. 2013 06:44 »
Just wondering when / what year bike these dipper / horn & kill switch mounts were discontinued?
& any idea of their worth?   ????

Cheers  WozzA

I believe that they are for the 54 and 55 models. Brake lever had horn button and clutch had dipswitch. Kill switch is mounted on the handle bars. It's what came with my 55 Road Rocket. 56 had combined horn and dip on the clutch lever and the brake had the air control attached.

I just had a look through the Lucas catalogue and by what I can see these levers and switches were used on all the A7 and A10's up until 1955. There are a couple of variants with the dip switch but both types screw to the lever unit.

My 55 GF had these type of levers. I've bought simple levers to save getting the old ones replated but still have the originals in my spares box.
