Owners of circa pre 1952 bikes will see the bearings as pt. no. STD 72 . They will need to use new pt. no. 000072 to order them. These bearings will fit bikes from way back in the prewar era onwards. Owners with circa pre 1952 bikes should always check if the old part number has been given a new pt. no. Then search the new pt. no. to discover if the part is available. Many of the old parts prefixed STD will have a new part no. To convert, just delete STD then prex the number with enough zero's to make a 6 digit number. eg STD 72 = 000072
