Haynes Roadster upright is similar to MK Indy... not the calipers

Important question - I didn't find answer.
Rear hub mounting plate is rotated 30 degrees... so the one hole is on top... which hole is this ?
Is it the the top right one (in book drawing - 90mm spacing) ?

I can't find OD127 tube, so I "design" my own upright - something like MK Indy..

You could just ask the people who make Roadster parts on here if they sell the 5" by 10g tube as a part......I have around 40 pairs currently in stock.

I know that some people offer them even at ebay, but I don't think it's cost effective as I live in Poland

But - if I got this tube, I still have to know how I should position RU8...

I found this (by Spikehaus):

but I can't definitely say how it is positioned.

Haven'y got the book to hand, but I think you mean the hexagonal plate visible on top in your photo?

If so, the holes are central around the 5" tube, and you make one the reverse of the other. The right hole topmost on one, left topmost on the other.

From looking atmy calpiers, I believe the best way for the bleed valve and handbrake cable is for the topmost hole to be the one that is closer to the front. i.e left hand upright has left hole topmost.

OK - everything is clear now...
I stick to drum-brakes RU8 drawing... and forgot about one drawing in "the book"

So - the top holes are this at 94mm spacing... left (left upright) or right (right upright)

Sorry for my mix-up...

Easy enough to get confused.
The plate is the same whatever setup your using, because the hubs are the same. The only thing that changes is how you have it angled. And the angle is up to how you can make it all fit!

Glad to have helped, it's about time I gave a bit back to this forum!
