Would it be difficult to make a copy since you have a pattern? If you have a sheet metal bender, it will do the job fairly easily and you’ll have the provision to make several for future projects.

What do you use for coils on your ET bikes?


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

It's way to thick of material for the metal brake I have to utilize. And the vary narrow space between the bends compounds the issue.

I have used NOS coils on all of the machines here. NOS coils are also being used for this Cyclone Competition build.

I resistant to the price, as well as the cost of postage from Australia. Baxters has them too and they are $50.

These are the types of brackets that seem to end up in one of the boxes of a basket case project that didn't belong to that basket case project ! I even feel like I have seen one of these in my collection of bits. However, if I do have one, I wouldn't have a clue where to start looking as I am pretty disorganized right now and with the snow on the ground I can't move the bikes in and out to move around in the garage to look. I will give it a shot tomorrow nonetheless. If I do have one, I would think $10 plus shipping would be a more realistic price than what the various suppliers want.

Awesome. I hope you find one.

For original coils, those in your image are not originals, the offset is needed. The coils bolt to the engine mount brackets using the same bolt that bolts the engine mount brackets to the frame.

And in this build, as with all my vintage restorations, the parts have to be correct. I'm what some people call a "rivet counter".

Gary,

Unfortunately, I was not able to locate any brackets such as this particular one today. The more I look at the picture though, the more I feel like I have one ! However, if I do have one then where it is hiding is the big question. I will continue to look until either I find it or you find one elsewhere.
