Can anybody give some advice on how the steering-stop lugs work on the earlier Commandos with the triple clamps where the stem is attached to the bottom clamp. I have a collection of parts bought as a basket case the frame (1969 model with centre stand on frame bracket) has 2 steering lugs welded to the steering head at the bottom, but there does not seem to be any corresponding pin or other stop on the bottom clamp. I am quite sure that the bottom clamp is correct for an early Commando as it has the two studs at the front for mounting the S type headlamp ring. Am I missing an additional component? Also with these earlier type clamps do people generally convert to the later type bearing arrangement with a spacer added, or convert to taper roller bearings?
