      Hello Rich! Yes, you guessed correctly, I am indeed in the UK, living in Luton, which is about sixty miles north of London.
       
      I have been ringing around the specialists, and I am awaiting responses now. I did have a very good one (Phoenix Hub Repairs) locally, but unfortunately they have gone now, so I'm looking farther afield, and will certainly look at Bikesmith Design- thankyou for the tip!

      Welcome to the group. Glad you found us Andrew. Where are you located? From the language use and equipment mentioned my guess is somewhere in the British Isles. If so there are some SA classic hub specialists there. I have run across their web sites in web searches.

      We do have a number of members who specialize in older SA hubs so hopefully one will have the part you need. Do a search for Bikesmith Design as Mark Stonich is an older SA hub specialist here in the USA who may well have what you need.

SA hub with triple chainrings (Deore XT) and a triple rear cluster made from a homebuilt adaptor using Suntour sprockets. I couldn't tell you the model of Suntour mech. that I used, but it could handle a 38T sprocket, and that's the largest one on the cluster. My "fast" bike used a 4 spd. SA "FC" hub with a Cyclo derailleur, and as Shimano made sprockets that could be modified to suit, I doubled up on these.
