Just found the following company too who seem to offer something similar:

Rubber Mounts | Bobbin Mounts

Sent them an email requesting information. Fingers crossed it'll be a cheap fix.

Exact same model rubber suspension units available and in stock, priced at 24.65 + VAT each, including delivery. They've also got a combined gross weight of 900kgs - from the installation instructions it's a simple nut, bolt and bush job. Thanks to you both!

Stripped the left hand hub off too, looks in good nick, so just going to replace bearings. Right hand split pin is seized in the shaft - both ends were sheared off trying to remove the thing - so going to drill it out. Hoping the hub is in good condition on that side too.

Just thought I'd write a little follow up...suspension ordered and fitted (after plenty of snapped drill bits getting the old bolts out).



Thanks a heap for remembering the name.

Also, gave the hubs a coat of paint, added the grease nipples and they're ready for bearings:



Glad I didn't go with the scrapping advice. It's cost me 100 to do the suspension, bearings, put new mudguards and jockey wheel on - plus a bit of Hammerite to finish it off - well worth it.

Nicely done, Sir!
