Hi All,

I need to make a chainsuck plate for a 1995 Thin Air. I don't suppose anyone here has an original one that they wouldn't mind tracing and scanning for me please?

Long shot!

Cheers,

Neilios

How strange. I was just moving boxes around and found the chainsuck plate from my old '96 Thin Air. If it is the same, cant see why not, i will grab a pic of it later if of use?

I dont have a scanner though im afraid, but can take pics and measurements.

Sorry, it is going on my Vertex. To be honest i cant quite remember if it was originally on the Vertex or the Thin Air :facepalm:

I would be happy to post it to you though so you can get a copy made, if that is any help? As you can see in the pictures it is a bit eaten up though.

Hi Mark - can you please please please simply trace the thing out onto a piece of blank paper, using a sharp pencil or pen ... and then kindly post that tracing to me, as then I can simply cut one out of some sheet aluminum I have on hand here at home already?

I'll even pay for the stamp, if you wish!! Will p/m my address info to you momentarily - in the hope that you won't mind obliging ...

With sincere gratitude!!!!
