I suspect you'll be lucky to find a used one. However, John Pearson from Kent, who originally made them, retained all the patterns and passed his business onto someone when he retired in the late 1980s. Some years later I remember Les Harris (Harris Performance in Herts) telling me that the company was going well and was used by HRC to make all the fuel tanks for their GP bikes; you could try contacting Les & see if he has a contact for them (if so, post it up here!).

Alternatively, you could try getting hold of Roger Titchmarsh (of Seeley replica MK2/MK3 fame) who may be able to help.

Hope it helps


Tim

Cheers guys for the quick responses but i think im sorted, managed to find one the day after i posted the question, i thought it wasnt for sale turns out i was wrong guess i must be a Seeley magnet! so if anyone wants anything just tell me and i'll let Santa know!

The other thing i do need is the clear perspex for the nose fairing if any one knows what will fit?

Is it this type of nose fairing which you have?

If so, try Mead Speed for the screen, they did me that one about 5 years ago.

Quick update.

Phoned Mead Speed and they still have the mould for the nose fairing screens, they can do them for around 32. Im going to order one after christmas. I'll let you know if it fits o.k.

That was just one of the resident spam-bots- have deleted it now.

How's the Seeley -have you got it finished yet?
