According to my ancient verniers they measure 36mm.

Dragged the Harris out of me cramped garage for a look, pretty pleased with how it’s looking, hopefully get the tank back at the weekend.

Rich, looking good like the original swing arm!
Not sure about TR Seat though it probably just needs dropping a tad to cover the frame rails but thats just my opinion :oops: .
Top work though!
It should look very much like Ricardo's old bike,

Spent a long time pondering over the seat height Phil and decided I quite like being able to see the frame rails plus it’s a big help with leg room cos I’m a lanky sod lol.
