A10 Super Rocket cases
« on: 02 October, 2017, 18:53:31 »
Hi all, I'd be grateful for a bit of advice. I just spotted a pair of 'super rocket' crankcases on fleabay but the number stamping looks suspect (see attached pic). Am I right in thinking that they've been doctored?

I agree. Looks like someone has used a "P" stamp and tried to alter it to an "R".

Also would expect to see either HC or HHC stamped below the number.

Just seen item on ebay.

Avoid.

The dynamo mounting cradle has been mostly ground off. You will not be able to mount a dynamo.

I hadn't noticed that, well spotted, that's saved me making a costly mistake. Thanks everyone for your replies
