    Good finds mate,

    I like the buckles I think they're from a parachute harness.

    Those look like the clips of a T-5 US parachute... and probably are.

    Can't beat finding a pinpointer when you're missing one of your own.

    I see where you are coming from now and have to agree ,are you thinking james ml 125 ,re flying flea type of thing?
    unfortunatly neither of those have a rear stand, I was thinking along the lines of a Autobyk from one of the major manufacturrers, maybe James, Excelsior, Rudge etc.
