thanks for reply John, yes I saw that, think mine might be repairable, reading the forum
I see they are forged not cast, so could weld another foot on it.

F/B Sidestand for Falcon

Post  peter@dunfordconstruction on Sat May 14, 2016 5:35 pm

Could you tell me the overall length of the arm you require as I do have a 300mm long arm ONLY one which does not fit a cruiser but it may be it fits your bike but you would have to make a bracket to fit it to the bike. I could E-mail you a picture if you wish. It is Painted Arden Green and has new bolt & spring

The arm and bracket is the same for all models ( except fulmar), on the Falcons 70,74,81 the back of the bracket is rebated at 90 Deg. to the vertical to mount over the top front engine mount and to prevent it turning.
On the light cruiser and Cruisers the back of the bracket is rebated at an angle to mount on the bottom front engine mount.

as they appear so hard to come by might it not be a good idea for the club to investigate getting some made. With the prices on ebay recently if they cost £50.00 I'm sure there would be a lot of takers.

making stands

Post  piston 197 on Sat May 14, 2016 7:34 pm

The Norton owners club had them made some time ago as the same stand that fits the Cruiser also fits the Norton Jubilee, Navigtor,Electra,
The ones they had made were £102.50p †each plus post and pack and possibly VAT, and made a small profit for the club as the forging process was very costly ( you cannot just cast them) I believe they no longer produce them as the cost to produce has risen above to sale price.
The Norton spares for lightweight models show that they still have 5 in stock ( 1/4/2016) at the price quoted above. Google" Lightweight spares list-The Norton owners club", they are item No 22611
if you want to have a go at making them feel free, but it will not be a cheap investment with large profits as the Norton owners club has found

Post  piston 197 on Sun May 15, 2016 12:32 pm

Peter ,as far as I know there is only one length of leg be it Cruiser or Falcon, Sandy Ross bought one of the ones I sold, he may measure it for you, if he sees this post?, but would expect it to be 12 to 14" long

For info, the side stand part number is the same for the Falcon 87 and Cruiser 80 (6739), but differs for the Cruiser 89 (7638). I have measured the length as 12" from the centre line of the swing arm bolt to the centre of the foot; the arm length is the same as that fitted to my Falcon 81. The total length including the fixing bracket to the frame is slightly longer (approx. 13").

The Falcon 87 stands much lower on the centre stand, whereas the Cruiser 89 needs a real heave to get it on the centre stand; presumably the double lift centre stand of the Cruiser 80 could not be used with the twin exhausts. †Sandy

Post  piston 197 on Sun May 15, 2016 4:24 pm

As far as I know all of the arms are the same length, but the rebate is different on the back of the mounting, it is this that dictates the angle the stand sits at, and may determine the different part number
The side stands on later models have 2 spring hook points , ( again may dictate a different part No?) one on each side, this was for the American market where with a bracket that fitted on the other side of the machine the same leg could be used with side stand mounted on left or right hand side depending on which side of the road traffic drove on ( all Norton Jubilees had the same arm as FB, but all had the 2 spring hook points.

falcon side stand

Post  bigfoot on Mon May 16, 2016 4:49 am

Hi lads thank you for all your help. It seems all the stands mentioned in the above posts are too long, mine is only 8 1/4" from bolt to foot, mine must be non standard.

Falcon Sidestand

Post  peter@dunfordconstruction on Mon May 16, 2016 7:34 am

Hi Bigfoot

The one I have is near to 9" from centre of bolt hole to foot it is for sale if you wish I will send you a photo. But do remember it does not have the bracket which attaches to the frame but is painted in good condition Arden green & has a new spring. Please ring me if you wish 07788925200. If you are not interested then maybe another club member would like it??
