I believe that the LDMCC has these in stock - I have bought them from the club in the past

Just a question on the photo.
My footboards have the raised section close to the motor.
The ones in the photo have the raised side on the outside.
Which is correct?

Check again Jonathan,
                                  The raised edge is on the outside on the right hand board, but on the inside for the left hand board - so they are only half right!! or wrong??

  Regards,
                Eddie.

Hi all
My 1923 sales catalogue shows that wooden footboards covered in industrial "lino" with metal edging were still in use on all models with footboards. It would appear that alloy footboards were introduced for the 1924 models, CW, SW, OW and OB. These alloy footboards boards did not have a raised side. They were the same low height both sides but had raised ends front and rear. These used 26 domed rubber pads on each side. Alloy boards with a raised side appear to have been introduced with the EW model in 1926 and this design used only 20 flat rubber pads each side; not the domed variety. If anyone knows better I am happy to be corrected.
Chris.

And the raised lip goes towards the engine.
