    Also not pictured here are the various front suspension parts, hubs, spokes, (no rims yet--I'm looking for 18" flanged Akronts or similar--preferably good used ones, anybody have any?), front and rear brakes, an Atlas donor engine, transmission, oil tank, primary cases, handlebars and magneto.

    I still need a seat, a set of high pipes, fenders/mudguards (I think I know where I will get these), electrical system (I might make my own harness/loom), hand and foot controls, footpegs (might fabricate these, too), tires, lighting (I think I know what I am going to do for lights), rear shocks, primary drive chain, final drive chain, drive sprockets, and oh, a hundred other little things.

    Fun, fun, fun!

    A genuine P11 gearbox is for sale on Fleebay at the moment.

    Thanks, I have a P11 transmission case and access to Commando internals, I was thinking about seeing what I could do with those, but I'll have a look at the fleabay one.

    Can't use the Commando mainshaft or outer cover, but gears, layshaft, quadrant, kickstart shaft will work. Atlas, N15 mainshaft will work.

    Alright, finally made some decisions.

    --bought a new Joe Hunt mag
    --bought a new seat
    --bought a new complete exhaust system
    --splashed out and bought an NEB clutch. Thanks to MDT-SON Knut, I am aware of the lack of dampener in the NEB, however I will be running a rear wheel with a very good dampener in it. Not a Matchless or Norton wheel, prices are outta site for that stuff.

    Aside from the kickstart spring, what's the difference between a pre-1962 and a post-1962 Atlas transmission?

    (I do know that an Atlas transmission will not work in a P11, at least not in it's original Norton case.)
