ConsBolt wrong size.
ProsEnabled me to use my old 70s/80s Ever-ready lamp.
The bolt was too large for my bike's front fork, but I had one which fitted. Otherwise, good.

Finishing touch to vintage bike add a mount to fix modern light. I like the location for the lamp in the form when cycling on the local cycle track.

ConsPoor chrome
ProsOnly at SJS. Price
The thread was correct for my Raleigh-built Carlton and I hadn't seen a similar product elsewhere. It saved me from having an unused boss on my forks. I do agree with a previous reviewer that the chrome could be better.

Exactly as advertised. Chrome finish could be better.
Useful For More Modern Bikes As Well

The bolt is a rather wide imperial size. But uses of bikes with metric bolts might still find the bracket useful. Especially if they have a bar bag which can obscure lamps fitted at the centre of of the forks.
Questions & Answers (4)
Is this for older forks such as a 1950 Claud Butler?
13 Apr 2023
I have some newer ones which don't fit.
The bolt is an imperial fitting 11/16ths AF (7.7mm) most fork bosses now use a 4mm occasionally a 5mm. SK 14/04/23
Can you please tell me the imperial size of the bolt thread.
13 Nov 2020
Can you please let me know the imperial size of the bolt thread. I need to chase the tread on my forks,as its partly blocked by paint.
The bolt is 26 threads per inch and 7.7mm in diameter which is about 0.30315 inches.

Hope this helps!

Please let me know the threading on the bolt. Is it 24tpi or 26tpi? Also diameter of bolt. Thanks
Hi there,

The diameter is 7.7mm, the TPI is 26.

Compatible Lights?
26 Oct 2014
Do you sell a light that is compatible with this mount? I have a bike with the boss on its fork, but no light or mount.

Unfortunately we do not sell any lights anymore that would be compatible with this bracket.
