Glad things are coming together. I would stick with the advice from Mike p5xbx. As Cocorico has said stick to one advisor or it Can get very confusing.

I can second Mick's comment - I have bought from them, though not any rebores, and they are very efficient. They appear to be well equipped, too.

I have used them for two Bantams I own. They do a good job, work by mail order if required and if you don’t have a piston they will get one of the appropriate size from Rex. I can only recommend them.

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a B175 in the workshop and a 76 Honda C90 waiting its turn. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

Flamboyant Blue Candy. Available from RS Paints. Many posts about this as people have found other colours which are similar in shade but easier to apply. I think on my D14 I used a Peugeot blue metallic.

I have been informed that the frame is threaded where the centre stand bolts fit and I think when I looked at least one of mine is kinda jangling around. Are the frames threaded at the mount points?and if I have to repair what us the best form of approach here?

Yes they are threaded only use the proper bolts as they don't like modifications there it tends to throw it all out kilter. Regards Basil.

My D7 uses bolts and nuts, but same principle I guess. The stand was very wobbly (and also had a rotten foot, but the replacement wasn't much better) so I've drilled it out and fitted a bush to return it to correct size.

I imagine the same would work for the D14, just more care needed to avoid drilling into the captive thread.
