Scarborough Faire’s rings have a rivet on the top rather than just a bump like Moss’s rings.

In reply to # 3698720 by Hryser I think I purchased this repro ring from Scarborough Fair.

Thanks again for your informative replies.

Interestingly, Jim's copy of the Lucas Master Parts Catalog seems to show a more tapered chrome ring which looks more like the "aftermarket replica" rather than the chrome ring shown on the "Original 1600" picture (attached).

I took two more pictures taken from the front that shows the small difference in the ring-to-fender contour.

Attached are "Ring A" which is supposed to be an aftermarket ring and "Ring B" which is the newly purchased ring which matches more the ring seen on the "Original 1600". True?

Oh well, I will follow Steven's advice and simply order another ring in order to have two matching rings.

Thanks again for all your input and have a great weekend.
