Nuts, Bolts & Washers reference numbers

I am currently restoring my 1968 Bantam which is stripped down and am thinking of using stainless steel nuts and bolts for the frame/tinware. Does anyone have a list of the specs of the various nuts and bolts so I can order a job lot. Alternatively the specs of individual nuts and bolts so I can put a list together. I have the Bantam parts number list but it doesn't have the specs. Nor do the spares lists I have from various well known parts suppliers.

Thanks

I'm sure that this question has come up more than once in the past, problem is that there are quite a few special shaped and sized fasteners needed for a "full set" that I doubt such a thing ever existed, or ever will?

Whitworth BSF, BA, Cycle threads each in many different sizes and changing year by year makes such a one fit all kit impossible I'd say, even if an engineering works did decide to start trying, I think the cost would be very high, to take in every model and year and variation.

I buy stainless in something like the clear plastic "selection" type boxes, they are good for such things as common front tank fixing bolts, rear mudguard top mounts, number plate fixings etc.

Stuff like riders' footrest, rear brake fulcrum etc etc are not to be found in any ordinary selection box. Things like the rear tank mounting/earthing bolt are much too long to find easily.

Good luck with your quest.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

I can help with tank bolts- I bought a set recently from an ebay seller.

** Please log in to view **

She also does a tank set for earlier bantams.

Somewhere here on the forum you should find a guide to different thread types used. I was advised to get one bolt and nut of each type, and use these to 'test' what size is needed for a particular job. With stainless it starts to get expensive. I don't think it's necessary. I prefer to use normal metal fasteners except for things like mudguards that are exposed to water and road salt.

There are loads of online traders in fasteners, and you can probably get them cheaper at autojumbles and rallies.

Try typing ** Please log in to view ** on all their models.

This Company doesn't supply anymore, but I think you will get everything you need from Motalia Ltd. or from anyone else you may know.  cheers

I tried the stainlessbits.com but this takes you onto their general website. Click on, "** Please log in to view **".  It's a fair old list so if you know the part number keep scrolling down. Draganfly have quite a few exploded views of Bantams various components, with part numbers. Hope this helps.

Afternoon folks.

Does any body know where I can find a list of the nuts and bolts sizes for a 1958 D1. I have looked on Draganfly and on their parts list most nut sizes and threads can be found but not the lengths of each bolt.? I have several original parts lists and diagrams but they do not help to find thread, size and length details.

Ride safe.

Cheers Mick

Hi Mick, Did you try the website I suggested?  I'm not sure which nuts and bolts you want ,but I went on the Draganfly website and at random ,chose nut and bolt number 44. Scrolled down to 21-5720 (on the website I suggested) and it came up with, BSF, 3/8 - 20 x 1 3/4.  Give it a try.  tip-my-hat

Thanks Jolon 1

I have opened the link, as you suggested, for BSA at stainless and it looks promising. I will get my part numbers and have a "happy time" scrolling through to make my list.

Cheers Mick

you can save that whole web page as an office doc to refer to at any time (all 110 pages)
and just enter your part number in “find”

If you have the part reference number for bolts for a D1 , is there a list anywhere where one can cross reference to know length and thread. Thank you.

Try the Members pages, General Technical, BSA Fastener list.

Also, some of the parts books have an appendix cross referencing part numbers to sizes/threads etc.

The very last (B175) parts books list quite a few  of the thread sizes against the part description.

hope-that-helps
