Thanks Julian, I have been down to my local bearing dist. They confirmed what you have said, the key number is '6204'. This number is  recognized by all the key quality manufacturers. They also checked out the Hoffmann 120 number, as in the BSA W/S Manual, this refers straight back to RHP 6204, who bought out Hoffmann.
So the only query that I now have is my Spindle? Is there only one type? Do the smaller bikes with Conical Hubs have a different spindle? OR is there only one type?

Arthur: thanks for your pictures. Please can you tell me the length of your spindle and the thickness of your distance piece? I have dismantled my spindle assembly. My bearings are the sealed type which are not the open race type that you can pack with grease as shown in the BSA W/S Manual! It was assembled with all the grease shields which, are they needed? Also is the sealed bearing type thicker (wider) than the open type? Did BSA fit these in their final production runs and if they did? Was the spindle modified to suit?

Thanks again to you both!

Bruce.
