Pe war Norton wheel hub bolt covers

Wanted a pair of pre war mid 30s large hub covers that clip onto the right hand side of the wheel hub and covers the 3 long bolt heads. Old distressed pair would be nice as it's for an oily rag bike.

Paul Norman has them on his site, they're made of stainless so a light bead blast makes them look better. https://racingnorton.co.uk/epages/4c675e64-813f-4c0a-8926-87a680c962a0.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/4c675e64-813f-4c0a-8926-87a680c962a0/Products/%220350%203775%22

Dave, Tim is looking for the mid-1930s large covers that went with the hubs which covered the retaining nuts.

Something like this one (although this cover is a replica made from a jam jar lid or something. I can't quite recall).

Re: Pe war Norton wheel hub bolt covers

Thank's Dave, It's the larger covers i need as Rob's and Rik's mails. Thanks to these pictures now we know what the spring clip looks like on the inside. I am looking for a pair of distressed ones to match my 16H.

Cheers
Tim
