Hi, I'm rebuilding my Sunbeam 250 and need the cush drive rubbers. Did anyone know if they are common to another a BSA (or how I could check)?

Or perhaps a dealer that might stock new ones? 

Thanks!

The Triumph owners might help..do you have the rubber?It is not too hard to adapt other cush rubbers sharp knives and some gripfil.If the rubber is there as a pattern then a trawl at an auto jumble may  yield something .Ardingly is comin g up ,where are you.I will have a hunt for you but Unicorn hooves may be easier.** Please log in to view ** the Enfield one  could be made to fit I think.

If you put a pic on we could compare them with others like Tiger Cub items etc, dimensions too might help.

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

Cannot get a 100% accurate dimension from pic, but they do look quite similar to my Triumph Tiger Cub ones, they're not dear and it could be worth buying a set in hope.

They were the best ones! Lol 6 were in pieces and the other 6 were OK but had hardened.

I'll check out the Cub dimensions thx.

I bought a cheap set of cush rubbers off ebay from a modern scooter of the correct thickness.  Plan is to chop them down. 

Little unsure if a sharp knife would be best tool or a hot blade.

hot blade in garden or a razor saw after putting them in the fridge/freezer.

Chopped with a sharp knife. A bit rough and ready but should do the job.

they won't be rubber some kind of butyl probably .A bit of silicone grease will do no harm.

Ah I see. They wouldn't be natural rubber but feel rubber like ,as opposed to plastic.

The chain case and cush drive is enclosed and half filled with oil so I hope they don't quickly fall apart...
