My one was quite rusty, my mate sandblasted it and powder coated it gloss black 25, looks really nice.

Classic Bike Shop seem to have them in stock for 40 plus postage and package. I have used this company in the past without any problems. Hope this helps.

Many thanks for the replies. I have emailed Dragonfly and they said no grab rail listed for 1962/63 A65 models ? The nearest year made is 1964 and they have none available. In 1965 they have part no 68-9045 for USA model and 68-9135 available but would they fit my bike? How different are the frames between the early A65 years? :-\

just bought a pair of exhausts from them. Good value and good service. Not the first time either.

Yes I have used them but sadly no help with grab rail. Looks like I will have to get one made if anyone can recommend a good fabricator ;)

Hi,
    The grab rail doesn't bolt to the frame, its bolted to the mudguard stay on bikes from 1965.

Best wishes...

Hi Bear,
            You're welcome. My advice is to leave well alone and ask herself to wrap her arms around you waist tightly and remember the courting days  :-[ :-* :-* ;) :)

Hi Straw Bear have you considered love handles sold at modern bike shops so that the one said gets her confidence back  and keeps bike looking original hope it helps. Roy
