Since the demise of Earlpart, is there anyone specialising in 1100 & 1300 parts?

I am in need of a single brake drum & a pair of disks for the swing type calipers after Adams antics at Blyton.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Longbridge motor spares took over from Earlpart: https://www.longbridgemotorspares.co.uk/

Of course there is also Robbie Claydon from the 1100 Club: robbiewc@hotmail.co.uk

Cheers,

I contacted Longbridge Motor Spares earlier today. He has some bits, but not others, I was also surprised that he was quoting £30 more for disks than I can get them on ebay!! Ordering also seems like a right performance.

It's such a shame Earlpart went down the swanny.

I was going to suggest Dave Kingersley - but I see he IS Longbridge spares.

He's normally at Beaulieu autojumble.

I have always found Dave Kingerley a very helpful guy.

I have broken a few, and am continuing to do so. I'll be refurbishing parts soon, subframes, calipers etc.

adoequipment.com

Longbridge motor spares are quite pricey yes, but I suppose where can you get stuff from!??

Thanks to a very kind member on here I got sorted.

I emailed Dave Kingerly to place an order last week & it took him 4 days to reply & that reply just said ring me on 21456486456135

Not very professional!

I've broken lots and lots of 1100s and have a fair amount of used spares.

I'm not too easy to buy from as I'm just so damn busy and it's not my job! but I do sell parts if people are stuck and don't mind waiting!

I bought a screen rubber off Dave kingley in under and hour of messaging him.
