I stumbled across the following.



1954 Norton Dominator 88 cafe - Yamaha wheels, Lyta tank ( project in progress)
1969 Triumph Bonneville
Currently 6 other non-Brit machines.
Past history includes 11 Brit and 13 non-Brit machines.
Some impressive and some just silly.

They appear to be cush drive rubbers for the rear wheel of 125 Hondas. The technique could possibly be modified to produce Norton cush drive clutch rubbers.

Actually shows a refurbished hub in the bottom left of the picture above. Didn't notice that before.

I like the ingenuity, recycling, and work ethic. I wish the YouTube publishers wouldn't fake the "World's Fastest Workers" part of it by speeding up the video, though!

So you're getting a part with thousands of miles on it before its ever installed grin
If they could figure out a way to mage foot peg rubbers out of them it might be a damn bit more durable than the India made ones available now.

Are you sure about that
These workers are all on piece rate probably something like 0.001¢ per item so they have to work fast or starve
