I popped open this thread and then remembered I had an AN order on the way.

Image my surprise when USPS said it had just been delivered.

Ordered on March 15th, got it March 22nd. Royal Mail/USPS. One week exactly. I'm impressed.

Based on the two Norton parts manuals I have typed into my parts database, there are 1287 distinct Commando parts. I have 436 distinct Andover Norton parts in stock and 167 parts for Commandos from other suppliers. I doubt that Old Britts ever had all AN parts in stock and I imagine that they had more than me, but it is certainly not true that I stock "just the popular items for Commandos".

Having seen their inventory in person they had a lot.

Curious if the cradle has the double back pins like the Mark 3, or was it the single top bolt, from stock?
My August 74 mk11 Roadster build is the same. Slotted guard, short swinging arm Welsh plugs and single top bolt. No front mudguard flap. Can't tell you what the seat was because it was gone when I bought it.

I mentioned to Andover that the one thing that would be nice to add to their site would be the number of units required per bike, so if you needed say two of part they could indicate it. They have now added that to the site.

If you have ordered from them in the past and you were in, say, the US you would have to wait for a shipping quote. They've now updated the site to automatically calculate the final shipping cost in the shopping cart. Very nice! I didn't see the shipping cost in the cart so I ended up paying a lot for shipping, I probably shouldn't have gotten the shirt... but it did get here really fast. I ordered on Wednesday and it got here on Friday. I don't think I would get it that fast from Old Britts and they are just up the road.

I think I was suppose to spend the stimulus money on US products, oops. Hopefully no one will tell on me. :D

My Interstate has a sticky center stand and a loose side stand. I figure some new hardware can't hurt.

Plus the King Dick rear head nut wrench with it's funny twist.

I also got a tee shirt, for some reason I though it would have the Andover Norton logo on it but now I realize that was just the watermark on the image. o_O

I have a tee. It’s black with an embroidered logo. It’s ok. I haven’t even worn it.

How about sharing a picture in the forum of the other gear. Bonus points for modeling it yourself.

And i now see that the Egyptian Government want 9 million Euro to release the ship...
Happy to be Evergreens lawyer on this one, fee up front ;). They are only liable for the ships that diverted around the horn, all the ships that waited are still going to pay the canal fees so the Egyptian Govt has only lost the fees form the diverted ships plus the cost of the tugs, diggers etc plus repairs to the banks (which need widening anyway). The final bill will be a lot less than the current €9bn but possession is 9/10ths of the law.

I have ordered lots of parts from AN recently, and each time I order, I pay the bill, then I wait 2 days for delivery, and each time they haven’t included the part I need that I forgot to order. So I do another order, and the same thing happens all over again.... I need help ;)

Andover is getting really quick on delivery.
It's generally at my door about 1 week or so after order.
This is the same as it's always been, but the days go by much faster now that I'm old!
