Hello,
I am looking for a brooks leaf spring saddle.
Is there any replicas?
I'm thankful for every tip.

Best regards

It is a Brooks model B220 saddle, as used on the RA model and the first few DT models (as this seems to be). I am looking for the same for my RA project! I do have some newly made support brackets for the leaf spring. The photo shows the progression of the machining operations, though the final operation of squaring the hole is not seen. The springs converge, so there are right and left hand brackets



...and a picture of the under-frame.

Thanks Doug, your answer is very interesting.
Let me know, when you have more informations.
Where to get the rest? The two leaf springs and the holder at the left side?
