Maintenance, Repairs, Upgrades and Improvements / Re: INDICATOR LENS
« Last post by Dave Snr on July 21, 2017, 10:32:36 AM »
Hi Tony,

Standard indicators on Daventry and Hesleydon Heskeths are the same as fitted to BMW Boxers from the same era i.e. 1982. Also fiited to Triumph T140, Tiger Trail and Harris Bonneville in early 1980's.

Should be able to find them in the classic spares market or ebay.

Best regards

Hi Guys,

Can anyone direct me as to where I can order a replacement lens for one of my indicators after one decided to leave home after 30 years?
Mine are on the black rubber stalks and im in the USA

Hi, thanks Jeff, I've actually tried putting a lead from the starter motor directly to my VW T4 battery and a large earth lead direct to the frame and the motor is still slow even when the drive is disconnected from the engine
I might try a replacement motor and see how that goes. All cables have been replaced and the earth double checked

Well found Julf.

It still has it's UK registration, so we know it's a Daventry bike, engine number 168 with EN10 mods. Previous owner Hesketh Motorcycles, Tadworth.

It certainly needs the carbs removing and cleaning. As you say Jeff, with that starting technique something has to give.

It's a wonder he didn't 'sprag' the bugger there...!!  Did you see his frantic twisting of the throttle..?

Nice to see another one out of the garage though...  How's your bike coming along Julf..?

OK Ian.

The last quote I got locally (Glasgow) was from Eric's in Govan...  They quoted £90-odd plus VAT, plus another £20 (plus VAT) to move the part (in their own van) between Birmingham and Govan.  I went elsewhere...

I suspect your £42 will be plus VAT, so £50.40, meaning a minimum (inc VAT) order of £302.40 (for 6).

That's why I started to source parts outside UK.  I've sourced steering head bearings, indicator units and footrest rubbers in USA, sprags, shock absorber spares and clutch plates in Europe and all at prices much better than in UK (even with exchange rates and import taxes, etc, taken into account).

I'm happy to post HOC members a sprag @ £50 inc postage and packing to UK addresses.  £45 collected (remember, Glasgow) and I currently have eight in stock.   Happy to get a quote for EU/RoW members, but some locations will attract BIG shipping costs.

Being a new Hesketh owner I am reading through old posts and gathering as much info as possible to keep my bike on the road and after reading about Jeff`s own rubbers I decided that my own needed replacing asap.Taking Jeff`s advice I found that a firm called David Silver Spares that specializes in old Honda parts. A pair of CB750 rubbers, part no. 50661310000, look like Hesketh footrest rubbers and fit perfectly, retail at £23.34 per pair including vat and postage.
Regards, Andy.
