    Unfortunately I'll have to disagree on you. I don't need to look at a magazine pix. I had the red manxman seat in my hands, took measurements and then a pix of THE seat, which is in my files. The pix of the seat includes a tape measure laid on it to show what I have said in text.
    We studied the difference between his seat and my regular atlas seats at great length. For comparison...I own 4 atlas'. The fender dzus hole position was also determined and measured as part of the investigation.
    The manxman seat is back in posession of the owner of the manxman that is currently a few feet away from me in the shop where I personally am doing mechanical service work on it. The owner took the seat back home since I don't need it cluttering up my shop.

    THE parts you refer to ( maybe?? for a single mainfold) and are NOT the parts I quote (BY NUMBER) on 9 Dec 2016 which are for dual carbs on my freinds manxman project and new extra ones are sourced from andover norton and ARE the same as originals from the OEM manxman in my shop.

    So in final conclusion you are wrong (again)
    PER ANNA
    "Norton Manxman's never had any Allen bolts or Screws fitted too them"

    your only relating to the home model parts manual and not the export Manxman 650s own part manual 36 pages in A4 produced by Berliner motors new jersey which reads four 5/16ths studs and nuts, the two Allen bolts were for the single manifold fitment for a single carburettor which was optional I do have this item thank you do have a nice Christmas
