Hi I'm Mike I had a C5 about 7 years ago and then sold it and always regretted it so I now have another Its a good one with very little use and unrestored, the body has practically no scuffs or marks, I think I probably paid top dollar but was happy to get the right one I remember buying a special little mod years ago that along with a wider belt helped stopped the belt slipping ... I got it from C5 alive.... it was called something like anti slip bracket or something and made the motor more rigid and keep the belt tensioned better. Does anyone remember these ??? Mike

Hi Mike and welcome to the website This was the original device used back in the '80s to help prevent the belt slipping: http://www.c5owners.com/sinclair-c5-resources-and-documentation/miscellaneous/motor-bracket Other have used cable ties to achieve the same thing.

Shouldn't this be termed a metal Metal Medal, or maybe a bracket for a Bracket Gong?
