Hi. Could someone help me out with a quick accurate measurement please.
On the rear subframe, the horizontal tube that is under the license plate. Visible when removing the tire.
Im guessing it's around 3/4 inch O.D. don't have access just now.
Being a German bike and therefore metric, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm are
choices. Don't think it looks big enough for 1 inch. i.e. 25mm
Looking to replace some hardware there and want to "metricate"

Many thanks

Hi, Hilton - good day to ya. A pretty rough step measurement of that cross tube (behind and just above the license plate holder piece/bracket) is 20mm (.7874 inches). HTH, and someone else will confirm. Best always.

Thanks Dick.

That would seem about right.
Need to buy some U-bolts with metric threads and nuts.
Much obliged.

Cheers
