    When did you find it exactly ?
    Just wondering if it could have been when spring was just around the corner ? ;):D

    Was the floor wet where you found it? Someone could have spilt some spring water.:rolleyes:

    Look, you've had six replies and two of them have been sensible, which isn't bad for this forum!o_O

    FWIW I tend to agree with Callumity, so be careful when driving your car!:eek:

    That’s the one. Over by the bit that turns that gizmo makes the bit go up and down. Without the spring it falls a bit flat

    Well this thread got of to a great start. Yes I agree could be a bonnet spring. Or if you have an old rear drum brake bike it could be from the brake rod. I am forever finding bits like that and just put them on a side and if I find something missing then relook at it. Don't worry it will sort itself out eventually.
    Joe.

    You don't by any chance use a bike lift. I have a similar spring on my hydraulic lift on the return mechanism

    It's the custard spring that sits next to the wadget flange, all Thruxtons have one.

    Yer daft buggers. He asked back in July and hasn't been on the forum for 21 weeks so we'll probably never know
