I have all the Rudge drawings on disc, but not with me. I'll try to dig it out for you when next in Bournemouth.

I posted this some time ago, as I had a bit of a problem putting the C11 on the mainstand, C10 no problem . Just bent and welded a length of 16mm round bar and ground to fit inside the frame, tucks away as hardly noticeable , there is just room to get a boot in and with very little downward pressure the bike just jumps onto the mainstand.No pressure on back or arms or any other worn out joints :) Its probably an addition that takes away the bikes original look  but it makes life easy, and I much prefer working with it safely on the mainstand.

I was always told that they found the most useless person in the company and got them to write the manual.  I think BSA put them in charge of stands.

well he certainly did a great job with the A7 and A10, they would make a front row forward grunt
