Wanted - Vega parts please

Post  storkfoot on Fri Apr 03, 2015 9:43 am

Front sprocket assembly ie, bolt, spring washer, sprocket and dished washer (are the washers generic to other models?)

Left and Right headlight springs.

Headlight glass - good condition.

The Headlight springs, I've found could be a hard to impossible one to track down. As for the glass that could depend on how quickly you need it? Rimini are talking about remaking all light units and this will drive down prices on people's stashed stocks, it's just when will there parts hit the market?
The drive side parts I'm sure someone will have, I think you can buy sprockets pretty easily.
Scooter restorations might be a good place to phone to see if these parts are interchangeable with the J range models, they usually have good stock levels.

I'm breaking an engine and have other parts too. I've got all of the above other than the springs which are very hard to find. PM me your phone number to discuss.

I haven't tried it-yet, but someone else on here posted a fix that sounds good; using two small coiled springs between the reflector and the mounting bosses with the screw passing through them. The OP used a throttle adjuster screw cut in half. This is the same as some car headlights are mounted. As the headlight reflector is held against the stop on the underneath of the headset top all you are looking for is some resistance as you screw it in to get the correct angle for beam pattern.

I'm not sure I quite get this, however, I do understand the basic principle Smile

When I get round to a dry build sometime next year, I'll refer back to this.

Thanks, Paul.

She's on here and Facebook. I have a feeling the springs were all sold. If you find a source Hoover them all up as you're not alone in wanting some. Me included.

If the springs you need are the ones that mount between the headlight itself and the mounts in the headset bottom that the screws go through, then I've just used two hollow tubes, cut at the angle of the mounts.

Yep, got a few spring sets left.

They are A$25 a set, which is about 12.50 pounds, plus postage.
