Yep, that's suzuki one I wrote. There's a few dimensions missing (I forgot to put them on :blush: )

The depth of the 'V' between the caliper mounting holes and all the mounting holes themselves. What's worse is I can't remember what they were either it was so long ago I wrote it ...

I would print the drawing off at actual size and get your ruler on it ;)

I'll have to get back to you to confirm - but I think mine are either 10mm, 12mm or 1/2"

mine were cut out with a waterjet thingo.
the PDF diagram was given to the company and they just fed it into thier computery thing and it automatically cut out the plates, while simultaneously emptying my wallet :swoon:

which I'm kinda getting used to. :blink:

Only dimension I could see missing was the PCD of the 6 bolts to the axle.
a quick scale check makes them 4 inches PCD and 10mm dia which fits a 3/8 bolt, which all sounds plausible for US design of the 40s!
