Hi All

Does any member have a Rear Brake plate to fit a 1964 Cruiser 89 Twin,
I would like the stronger modified one that FB did if possible?

Cheers
Stuart Houghton

I was not aware that the brake plate had been modified. The 1958 parts list for the Cruiser 80 shows the part number as 003809, and this is the same part in the 1962 Cruiser 89 list. Francis Barnett never published another parts list for the Cruiser 89 (unless you know otherwise), despite substituting the 4T engine in 1963/64. What was the modification to the later back plate?

I believe they were modified to have more support around the brake anchor stop as there were instances where it tore out of the backplate causing the brakeplate to rotate and lock the wheel ?

JH, Thanks for this info.

Some years ago while visiting Vale Onslow in Birmingham I did see an original FB booklet which I think listed modified/superceded parts, which I guess was issued to FB dealers. It would be interesting to know if anyone has a copy of this (and/or a Cruiser 89 parts list later than 1962).

Yes i definitely have one of the later reinforced rear 6" brake plates, they have a spot welded plate linking the brake stop and the shoe pivot stud, effectively making them double thickness around the anchor point.
I believe they were also used on the competition machines ?
