As the title states.....

Anyone with a not needed set either the straight T3 type or the angled lm2 type indicator stalks (right word?) stems , not fussed.

Also looking for that rod that holds the LM2 seat up  and folds away when not needed......

Do you mean the indicator mounting brackets?
Gutsbits has them £20 each:

As for the seat prop...didn’t know they had one?...must be DIY?

Managed to source NOS stalks on ebay.
As far as the seat prop, most definitely stock on my 1st LM2 in the 80's and my Father's LM2 1000 Ago Special (which is my most recent aquisition - long story). Both were bought new by my father, both had seat prop thingies except it is now missing. :)

Yep, my Spada came with one, top end goes in and pivots on a small 'tube' welded to seat base, bottom end goes thru hole of bracket which is one of the two hooks on top of the frame tubes. You should also have the seat locking lever, as it's each end of this that goes under these hooks.

On my Spada the bottom end of the rod was just a 45 degrees bend, not as fancy as that drawing.

PS: there's also like a half roll springy bit welded to the seat base which the rod clips into when it's retracted, for closing the seat.

Yes, that exactly. My Le Mans seat base has those bits welded on, but no rod. Will make one up using the diagram as a template
