Same down in the south, however the thought occurred that maybe more a hobbyist manufacturer may look at these, people that produce items in museums etc. I'll keep snooping as well.

Hi, I had the same problem in finding a good spline centre. For kickstart shaft. I purchased a similar sized new spline shaft off eBay but with straight shaft. Cut the new spline boss off and welded it to
My cranked origional kickstart shaft. Works fine.

I also had our local blacksmith weld the top from one kickstart with poor splines onto another with good splines.

It's been working a treat.

It was stick welding using a high chrome content rod.

I'm looking for a kickstarter for a G2, like mentioned very hard to get hold of, if someone could get them made I would be happy to pay upfront

Well that's the little model 14 finished it may not totally original or perfect but I'm pleased the way its turned out, its got a Cpl of testing run outs under its belt at the mo and I must say it performed very well.

Thanks Paul, its a good feeling when it turns out close to the image in your head before pulling it to bits. But its not a patch on the job you did on your 350
