If Parkwood clips are correct Clive, then AJS must have used more than one type of clip. I managed to walk as far as my garage today and take pictures of my 28 K9 also a pic of another group members bear clip. See attached pictures

I see the difference you are identifying Rob, our original poster who is also Rob will have to look around further. Happily the one I purchased has a flat on one side and bent on the other, and as the rear mudguard was new it did not matter where I drilled the holes, but I do have the ugly bolt and spring! These photos will help Rob to track down what he needs.

I do believe my clip is original Clive, it is the same as the other group members example. Only one end bent. Note the short cone shape spring is very tidy. The first example posted here, Jaris and Parkwood clips all appear to be what Jari calls the Terry Type clip. Compare that awful long spring & bolt plus large washer on the to Parkwood clip with the clip on my K9. I would not however dismiss a claim, AJS may have used more than one type of clip.

PARTS NOW MADE.
Here you see the correct 1920's rear stand clip. A small batch of the cone shape springs have been made.
