Philip,

One of the excellent features of a Commander is the enclosed rear chain allowing the chain to be lubricated with 20/50 mulitgrade oil, the enclosed rear chain comprises, amongst other components, two gaiters one top and one bottom, sometimes the gaiters will fail so it is always very useful to have a couple spare on the shelf at home.

Andover Norton; who usually have a good stock of spares, stopped making the gaiters some time ago and because of the importance of the gaiters a fellow forum member Chris Harvey went to a lot of trouble to have new gaiters made at his own expense. Chris borrowed the original moulds from Andover Norton and with the original material spec found a specialist company in England who manufactured a good number of gaiters of excellent quality, Chris even had each one pressure tested so he knew that they would not leak.

Chris is selling the gaiters close to cost price and can be contacted by e-mail chris.harvey33@ntlworld.com.
