New Head Races for EW350
« on: 13 Aug 2020 at 14:34 »
I recently put a post in the ‘parts wanted’ section of this forum to request steering head races for a 1926 EW350.  Judging by the lack of response it would seem these are either not something that needs to be replaced too often or are just not available.  So, I have approached my local engineer/machinist and he would be able to make some up but at some cost.  However, if there was sufficient interest from others wanting head races I would be able to get more made at a more reasonable cost in the region of £60 a pair.  I have used this engineer for other parts and he is VERY good at what he does.

The basic dimensions for the bearing are:
    Outside Diameter - 1.902"
    Inside Diameter - 1.395"
    Height - 0.197"

The attached pictures show the race that I still have on which the new races would be based.

So, just to gauge interest before I go back to my engineer, could you let me know if you are interested in buying a pair of races.  There would be no obligation to purchase at this stage.  I should add that I'm based in UK and that postage would be at cost.

Regards,  Steve

The London Douglas Motor Cycle Club have carried these in their Spare department in the past, but trading is shut down at the moment.

Hi Steve I’d be interested I’m in Sydney. Aust. I would make a suggestion you put this post on the general discussion page as I’m sure these races fit quiet a few models and you’d get more interest. Are you just getting the outer races made or the full set. Ray
