DRAGONFLY REAR WHEEL NUTS
« on: 25 Jan 2021 at 16:20 »
Can anyone tell me the correct size of the rear wheel nuts for a Dragonfly with a British brake hub. Or even better why I can buy a pair of stainless steel ones?

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

The nuts on my Dragonfly were 5/8 x 24tpi, what thread form they were I don't know (whit or cycle)

I wonder why they used 24tpi when 26 was so popular, didn't check the form though. 24tpi was popular with Triumph in the 20's

Kind regards Colin
