It arrived today and is an excellent tool. Here
is a photo and a comment for your website.
How did I manage for so long without this tool for tightening screw plugs on old British motorcycles? The picture shows it in use on the chaincase oil filler plug of my 1962 Triumph Tiger 100SS, and it works just as easily on the gearbox filler plug. Well designed and strongly made.
Hi John, Thank you for the fast and efficient service. Finding someone that does these stainless parts is a godsend – no more rust to try to clean off. To anyone needing stainless parts this firm is the one to choose Best wishes
Many thanks for email re
mudguard brackets, I will look out for them in the post.
Would just like to say how very pleased I am with the quality
of the parts you recently
sent me and the excellent service you provide.
Have a great Christmas,
Hi John Very pleased, order arrived promptly. Parts as described. Yet to fit the plates but they match up well with the originals. Regards Regards.Flecher

This is a bit of an odd request but I wonder if you can help
I am trying to modify the T140 engine plates I bought to suit a later
right hand brake lever T140. As I live in France getting materials really is a
problem. I need to make up some spacers and a support for the brake lever
pivot, which I intend to weld to the plates. Looking at the plates I bought
from you it struck me that the scrap from the holes in the plates, specifically
the brake lever hole and the swinging arm shaft would be ideal as a starting
point as the thickness is correct and the material is obviously the same. Is it
possible to obtain some of these scrap bits, or failing that some scrap of the
same plate I can work with. Of course I’m happy to pay for these and P&P.

Thanks for the info and getting this sorted so quickly. I didn’t see any
payment request? As I said happy to pay for your trouble.
Needless to say I am very happy with your service and the products sent.
As for the after sales service I can’t remember receiving any better. Pleasure
dealing with you, I’ll keep an eye out for any more of your products I can use
in this project.
I thought I’d add a
contribution to this thread, I’ve bought a few bits and pieces from a chap
called John Thomas, and he’s located in the Black Country here in the UK. I
have had a fair few parts from him for both OIF and pre OIF BSA singles, these
include a B44 bash plate (which was so good I bought another for my ’68 250),
I’ve had horn brackets, a brake torque arm and a lid for my B50 electrical box.
All of these parts have proved to be a good fit, they are supplied un finished
so can be polished or painted, all are laser cut so just need the sharp edges
removing before finishing to your required standard. I’ve found John to be
friendly and very helpful when I have had trouble knowing exactly which part I
require so much so I have sent him some of my parts for him to duplicate and
add to his range, he also make parts for other marques and some handy tools.
Have not received the goods yet but the on-line purchasing process and communication are splendid. Have fun but drive safely and remember: if it’s stupid but it works, it aint stupid!

Hi John, thanks for the electronic box mounts brackets and lid, I’ve compared them with originals and they seem good but unfortunately my bike is away getting the exhaust system made, I will get back to you with the results when I can but I’m sure they are great. Cheers John. Ps had another look at the website and it’s looking great..
