David,

See this post regarding the d-tubing. the stand in red primer is the one from my '36 Aero 600.

I have a drawing for the S6 stand, and can probably adjust it for the Aero dimensions.

Can probably do something about photos of the foot rest stand-offs tomorrow.

many thanks Doug, the main feet seem ok and resemble your pics, how does the stand oscillate , what should be the stop pins and what do the fulcrum sleeves that the brake pedal and footrest look like ?? regards david

David,

Here are some pictures of the footrest extensions/center stand trunions. Somewhere around here I have drawings for the trunions, as these need renewing (as can be seen).









The flats on the trunions engage with the vertical slot of the frame lug. The lug projection at the 2-o'clock position acts as the center stand stop.

many thanks Doug, the pics show exactly what's wrong with mine! the serrated ends have been cut off where the footrest marry up to !! regards David

Hi Doug,
Did you ever find the drawings of the footrest extensions/stand trunnions?
After ten years, I have got back into the S6 project. (Had a little health issue, so now retired and playing in the shed)
Even a sketch with measurements would be fine.
Regards
Jonathan

Jonathan,

Actually I forgot I was supposed to be looking! The drawings were in the S6 folder, as those Aero part numbers date back to that time. Below each image is a link to a PDF version of the drawing that is a higher resolution.
