"1960 Norton es2"


          

Hi
I'm wondering if anyone can help.
I have a sideline frame from a 1960 es2, I want to get it painted, however there are two little tags that look to have snapped off in a previous life. Can I grind what's left of them off? Or do I need to get replacements welded on?

Welcome to BritIron.com

A few guys can give you an answer but you will have to be patient. It could take a few days.

Cheers,

If you are absolutely never going to use the tabs then grind them off.
However what are they for? Oil tanks mount?
I would probably put the tabs back on in case I ever want to use them for their original function. Then you would not have to grind the paint job off.
totally your choice...

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I don't know what they were for, so I don't know what size replacements I'd need to put back on

Grind them off is best bet if no replacements. But they can be left for show and history if you want them to be seen.

Your call.
