Just been having a look around for a tyre pump , Hitchcocks have them on stock don't know if they are NOS or repo though............asking £44.00 plus the postage.

Most likely a repro!! if you carefully measure the mounts, then you will find one at a jumble for half the price!

 

Don't think I'll go as far north as Catterick! but can always post.

 

Cheers,

That's what I was thinking a repo ,bit on the steep side . I'll take the chain guard with me :D .Which way will you be going back M62 East or West ? . Just a thought could catch up with you at a service station .

 

Cheers

Sorry, forgot to post the picture.

 

You can also buy the tank top transfer and the lube details and the headlamp Miller transfer from "Classic Transfers"

Hello Ron, you mention transfers for the Flea. From classic transfers I can find the diamond Miller headlamp one, but none others. What other ones do I need for my Flea please ?

Thanks

Nice Flea!!!! Yes, I had the transfers made by Classic Transfers, years ago, had a very good sample picture of the petrol/oil mixing from Matt Moore, and the Miller logo from an original brochure from my archives, together with a factory picture.

Cheers,

Very difficult part, I have an NOS one, that I will have cast eventually, but not on the top of my list, do have the other parts.

It can be made however from a little block of aluminium, drill/machine a 7/8" hole in it, and with a grinder and files etc. you can shape one, lots of work, but can be done. Pictures of the real one.

Cheers,

Lex
