Suntour barcon locknut replacements available

I got asked if I could make these so I made a prototype and the answer is yes.

It's made of brass, and I made this one thick just in case it needed more threads engaged (steel being stronger), but after installing it it seems a lower profile, more matching the original, will work.

Guaranteed not to rust:





$10 for one, $15 for two, posted anywhere in NA.

Let me know if you want thick as shown or thinner...

No, I put a spell on them so when they get lost they magically find their way back to the pile of ping****its under the bench, so I can sell them to you again.

Thinner versions:

These look much better, don't think I'll bother with thick ones.

I can't believe how a week ago these were: "oh them, forget it, you'll never find one, they unscrew fall off and go missing and NOBODY has replacements!", and here we are: "Two for $15"!
I will be sending oneclick a PM for a pair, thanks for doing us SunTour Barcon fans the biggest little favor in decades!

And BTW, your guarantee against future loss is clean threads, then a dab of LocTite Blue

What the heck! I believe I'm going to PM for two sets! I have them mounted on at least four bikes, two of which have acorn nuts as replacements!

I might be in for a couple pairs as well - I'll PM. I still owe you a PM for a thumb screw, but it's been a hectic work week.

nlerner, mkeller234, twolve, unworthy1, SJX426, AJI125, and romperr, yours are made and mailed.

EDIT: just got a message from a fellow in Maryland that the spacer I sent him on the 10th of May arrived 1st June. I could have ridden a bike there faster.

Nice job. My Suntour Barcons are sitting on the shelf at the moment so no danger in any nuts going astray.

A suggestion: consider nickel plating them. This is incredibly easy as a DIY thing. I did some testing on old sewing machine parts lately and the results are remarkable. Check out one of the many You-tube videos.
