Hey guys, here we go again!

I have my '67 Bonneville basket case project to the "rolling chassis" status. Tonight I attempted to attach the side stand, but ran in to an issue. The frame lug, welded to the frame is thicker than the opening on the side stand by about 1/16".

I can only assume that the side stand that came in one of the crates, is the one from this bike, but need some advice.

On the later '68 - '70, the side stands were round all the way to the bottom. On the side stand I tried to install, the stand has a "foot" where the side stand meets the pavement.

Looking at my '67 parts manual, this seems to be correct. However, I have never ran in to a situation where the side stand didn't slip over the frame lug with ease.

Any suggestions, other than grinding away some thickness on the frame lug?
Regards
John

The later '67 650 Triumphs came with the longer, fully-round stand you describe.
The stand's lug on the frame is also further forward than the one for the earlier 'straight' stand.

Which FRAME do you have?
Do you now have BOTH types of stands for comparison and trial fitting?

Is there evidence that the frame lug is not original, but someone's repair job?
When I get to my storage facility today I will take measurements of the lugs on both earlier and later frames.
I'll post what i find later today.

I believe my '67 is a late in the year model. S/N DU52847 I have researched the s/n but cannot find the date of assembly or dispatch. It is a Canadian import.

I only have the one side stand to try and it is the straight version with the triangular foot.

The lug on the frame is original and not re-welded.

I picked up the bike literally in baskets, so have no idea if the side stand found in one of the boxes is actually the correct one for this frame.

Thank you for your time to respond.
Regards
John

1967 numbers went from around DU 44xxx to DU 66xxx. My TR6R is DU566xx, and it left the factory in January 1967, so yours was likely made at the end of 1966, and numerically it's not near to the end of the sequence.

Mine has the straight-leg stand with welded-on flatwork foot, not the later curved stand.

Off the top of my head, the side stand lugs for 1967 and earlier frames were thicker. Are there any numbers cast onto your side stand ?

John,

I can't help with the cast numbers you provided. In my experience, the cast numbers I have seen is the casting numbers which sometimes happen to coincide with the actual part number, such as F7373 or what have you.
