Hi all, when I first restored my 1966 A65 Lightning I changed the frame, due to the original being a bit butchered sometime in its past. I believe the current frame is a 1968 frame.
I also made up my own battery
carrier and although it did the job it was improvised and non standard.
During my current rebuild I have purchased new battery
carrier components from Burton Bike Bits. These are a 68-4595 carrier, a 68-4578 strap retainer, a 04-2608 hook and a 68-4577 strap. I also bought the rubber base from BBB and rubber mountings from Draganfly. The Draganfly rubber mountings look pretty pathetic and the bottom one is just a short piece of reinforced rubber hose about half an inch long and cut off without even making sure the ends are square. It look like a piece of scrap and I can’t believe they get away with selling bits like this at the price they charged for it.
Anyway that’s digressing from what I would like your help with.
How do I assemble these components because after having a quick go at it I just can’t figure out how it works.
I’ve attached photographs of the components and if anyone can enlighten me as to how they all fit together I’d much appreciate it, as I cannot find anything about this anywhere that I’ve already searched on.
