Toolbox fixing

Postby cbranni » Sun Jan 07, 2018 1:24 pm

A happy and healthy New Year to all.

1956 Matchless G80CS Comp

Has anyone got a photo or even a description of the bracket that fixes the left hand side toolbox to the bike, I have no fixings on the frame in that area other than the one that it used for a saddle. I have done a search on the forum and from what I have learnt I believe the toolbox bracket was fixed to the mudguard, can any kind member confirm this for me.

Kind regards
Colin

Hi Colin,
I have a '56 G80CS which is my one and only street bike, and another '56 G80CS in early stages of restoration.
The left side toolbox has one only fixing to the frame, which is a lug on the frame rail under the seat. The top of the tool box is held by a single vertical bolt through this lug. Also, the toolbox is fixed by an aluminium bracket to the mudguard. The bracket has two fixing bolts on the toolbox and two other fixing bolts for attachment to the mudguard. In addition to the bracket, thin steel strips are used as reinforcement on the inside of the mudguard.

Look at the attached photos of the tool Box and fixings.

regards
Bjørn

Some additional info:

Part no. for the bracket is 021492.

AMC Classic Spares/Steven Surbey has it on their parts list.
