I have an Aussie import HJ61. It looks like someone fabricated a couple spindles onto the 2 edges of the rear bumper to attach a jerry can and spare tire carrier.

Do any Aussie owners recognize this thing? I'm hoping I can track down the other parts to create the hinge (I have a friend that can fab a carrier at that point).

Thanks in advance!

My spindle measurements are 35mm for the larger bearing and 25mm for the smaller one.
103 mm long, measuring from the bottom of the bottom bearing to the top of the threads

Holy smokes! I knew you guys could narrow it down. I'll see if I can measure mine and narrow down if I have the same size.

Thanks for posting the parts and the bearing info! My machinist buddy can likely help me with everything else.

Cheers!

As @cruiserdan stated , it is the older spindle. I would simply contact Kaymar, or Cruiser Brothers (US Kaymar rep) and try to order the parts. If they don't sell anymore they should have all the bearing #s and thread dims.

Kaymar sold to APG a few years ago so older parts may be non existent, but the numbers should be available.
