    Longbridge side screen star shaped nuts

    When restoring my boss's 1957 longbridge BN4 it became aware that he did not have the correct star shaped nuts to secure his side screens and no reproduction was available. I have not seen any used ones for sale either so I decided to make him a set. The nuts came out perfect so I decided that if we needed some then others may as well so I made extras. That was about 5 years ago and I just now finally got them crome plated. They are made from brass stock and then were triple plated at Pauls Chrome Plating. I now have them back and they are ready if someone is in need of a set. I have one pair spoken for already so I have 4 pairs left after that. If anyone is interested you may send me a notification message.

    Jeff,
    Do you need reverse threads down under? I will definitely sell you a set. Give me a postal code and I can get a ship quote for you. It will be 90.00 us dollars plus whatever the ship cost will be.

    Larry,
    For US customers I am asking 100.00 shipped for the pair. I take paypal thekarabas-at-cox dot net. I spell it out so the angry computer bots don't spam me.

    With these being sold I now only have one pair of the nuts left and after that there will be no more. I don't plan on making more.

    Thanks Jim

    Postal code is New Plymouth, 4374, Taranaki, New Zealand. Please provide a shipping quote soonest and payment details for money transfer.
    No, we don't have reverse threads, but we do walk upside down and still manage not to fall off the world!

    Hi Jim, monies sent via PayPal. Also address for shipping. This is the end of a 40 year quest! Part of the problem, like with many other things on the Longbridge built 100, was I didn’t know I was missing them until about twenty years ago!
    thanks again for making them!

    Will do, and I just noticed that you are in Lafayette. That’s where my son in law is from, and his family still lives there. Small world, isn’t it��. Once again, thank you!!
