OK....... I know I took this off of a 45" at one time or another, at least I think I did, but ??, I can't remember what it is used for. Normal for me, heh. :wink: . Anyhow, I checked my jiffy stand parts, thinking it may go there, and it doesn't fit any jiffy stand I have. I checked linkage parts and I have not been able to fit it in on them either. I thought it may go to a right hand shift setup but I haven't found a reference for it there either. Over all, the part is roughly 1-3/4" with the bend included in the length. The rectangular hole is 17/32" x 15/32". The small round hole is 3/16".Approximate distance between the rectangular hole and the round hole is 1-3/16". Angle of the bent area is around 30 degrees. Plate thickness is 1/8". Thanks, Pa

Hi Pa,

Modified drum brake lever???

Does look a bit like the "stop" bit on a big twin side stand though...

Chris wins the prize! That is a spring mount for the jiffy stand. The early type. Later ones had two ears to keep the spring centered and help eliminate accidental lowering of the stand.

Well........ I tore an oem jiffy stand apart to get a better look at the lever on it. The casting number on the jiffy stand I tore down is 418-32. As you can see, this lever looks nothing like the one I previously posted. The angle of the rectangular hole is different as well. The distance between the rectangular hole and the round hole centerlines is approximately 1-1/4". The rectangular hole measures 17/32" x 15/32". The round hole is 1/8". Pa

Honestly from the way it's beat up, it looks to be a modified later one........maybe it was damaged and the owner couldn't find a replacement.

It sure does Chris. Who ever had the jiffy syand I took it off of may have substituted it for an original jiffy stand spring lever. This may also explain why the one side looks to be worn off. Pa

i already seen the same part on a 45' ....
but sorry : can't remember on WHAT exactly .
but the only one thing who hurt me is the rectangular hole instead of a common square one ....
about the first pics : i don't believe it is a 45' part ( coz of the rect. hole )
the second one ... i have no comments about it . :oops: maybe handmade ...

That looks more like it ! Reach into that pic and unscrew the nut. Maybe rectangular fit is under the nut ? Pa
