Footrest rubbers.
« on: July 06, 2017, 01:53:49 AM »
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. http://imgur.com/a/KoYws

Hello Andy,

The reason that the CB750 footrest rubbers look like Hesketh items is because they are. Actually the other way round of course... I have quite a few of these spare but as they are NOS (New Old Stock) items, they are quite hard and I suspect new ones from David Silver will be softer. I also have a big bag of original gear change rubbers but same problem as they seem to split within a few days of fitting them... Sadly, all these "original" spares are well past their sell-by date and I made a point of throwing all my old BREMBO brake seal kits in the bin that I knew were at least thirty-five years old, same for brake hoses which were fairly awful spongy things even when new, compared to modern black braided items...

I have just come back from a visit to the grand opening of MIRUS-55 (Moto Corsa) in Gillingham (Dorset) this morning on my V1000. Good range of bikes inside and out plus a great cafe', although their new Brough Superior doesn't do it for me. Quite sad they have dropped the HESKETH venture but understandable and its replacement looks fantastic...
