Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

looking at many owners pics of 37 aero:s I wonder what the correct bars should be ,and levers? inverted or parallel? regards david

ANTOINE

Hi, on mine ( AERO 1936 ) the levers are inverted. I don't know to send a photo with my mail.

Doug

The handlebars are nearly planar, but the ends do drop down slightly. the levers were inverted. The LDMCC might have these in there spare department.

Here is a picture of an originals set with controls.

many thanks to all for the pics! now, where can I buy a set of inverted 7/8 levers as from what I have seen, made in India, are from  brass and are flimsy and I discovered will bend!! perfect for slamming on the front brake!! I don't think!! regards david

graeme

There is a bloke here in Australia named Chas Lipscombe, who makes beautiful inverted levers out of nickel steel - I'll see if I can get his details for you

polly

many thanks, only the ones available here seem to be brass and made in india!! david

hi

I have had some from India they are ok , but they do need some work and do sort of stick out when you compare them to original levers .

polly

hello carl, you must have chosen wisely! or lucky! because the ones I have just got from India bend as easy as soft butter when you pull them in! bloody dangerous regards david

oily bloke

Replica inverted levers can be bought in the UK from Alan Clarke who advertises in the VMCC journal.
He makes then from 316 polished stainless in 4 3/4" and 6 3/8" (pivot to lever tip) and come complete.
They are not cheap at £110 per pair but I got some for my EW and I am very happy with them.
I will put his details up on the spares/services section.
