Stella 1925?
Hi, I've almost finished the restoration of a Stella motocycle, do you know anything about these bikes? I need a nut for the head stock, it looks like 26.5mm(??) and a kick start return spring for the Staub gearbox, any ideas. The bike belongs to a local moonshine producer who bought it in 1928.
