both my Spondon FZR and early RG500 swingarms used TLA2516z roller bearings in them (4 off), which I'm pretty sure were a standard size for spondon swingarms (25 x 32 x 16) They had four bushes in them, 2 off at 20 x 25 x16 and 2 off at 20 x 25 x 27, one of each in each side. I'll try and find the sizes for the thrust washers and post them in this thread. Unfortunately the cups that the thrust washers run in are spondon specials, made in various thicknesses so if you need those you'd have to have them made by someone. Hope this is helpful!
helpful info, and corect about the cups each frame could have a diferant configuration, the last job spondon did for me was sort my swinging arm out in this area. There was still a box of the spacers in various sizes, in december 2012.

crusty: Hi Lads I'v got a frame here that I'd like to get some info on it's a steel cradle frame that was built in 1979 I believe, the frame number is SPE/750F1/16 which is stamped on a small plate brazed on to one of the tubes close to the headstock. Thanks Mike.

bigelsy: I have obtained a Spondon Hooligan by hook or by crook. (Long Story) I am trying to find a home for it as I do not have the time or facility to do it justice. Is there anyone on here that can give me some guidance to ensure it goes to the right owner.
