Peter, there are a number of vendors on ebay when I search for tongued washer

I think Peter needs to use a site called "Google.com"   Grin Cool

Never heard of it. Do they sell washers there? Perhaps tongued washers?

I bet it will be cheaper!!

I just heard back from JT - $7.50 per washer plus shipping and insurance! Are you kidding me? So, I need to spend over $50 for washers? HA! Not me!

Well, Yamiya it was. $30 shipped for two sets. Thanks, Andy!

Still insanely expensive, but at least is not $80 or more

At least now when you are riding to St Louis you will be safe in the knowledge that you have brand-spanking new tongue washers and your wheels are not going to suddenly fall off. PLUS! You are going to have a very clean tongue which you can stick at Treeve as you pass his house   Grin Grin

Does it make you wonder why 100+ HP modern bikes don't need those stupid things? I always found that the earlier bikes were designed with belts + suspenders. Like that nut holder thingy underneath the bolt on the brake lever. Wise precaution in the day, but serious overkill today. If you torque a nut to the correct spec, it shouldn't fall off, right?

   I'm guessing that he was lurking while waiting for you to buy some. Grin Grin  Too bad on the purchase, I have a box full of them that I don't seem to be able to give away.

   Hah! Just kidding though I do remember not paying much at all for them a few years ago when I bought some from a local stealer.
