Hello Peter, This is my recollection on the parts you mentioned, AB cotterless, GB 88 & synchrons, SFQR Airlites were all still available in 1969, so they would have hung about in the shops into the early 70's. Regarding Barelli pedals I fitted by first pair in 1978 and I thought they were still relatively new then. Could be wrong. Joe Whisker was still selling them in 1988. They are wonderful pedals and were made just down the road in Bar Hill Cambridgeshire. Best wishes Mick.
