if you don't have a Rider's Handbook for the Model S bikes you really need to get one. It is sort of like a little shop manual and it was all there was until 1959. Here is a poor scan from the handbook, it should tell you what you need about the rubber bands, hope it helps.

I just picked up a 1948 125 S and I am trying to figure out how to put the new rubber bands on the front girder. Do I take the center roller piece out somehow. Sorry that I do not know all the correct nomenclature of the bike yet.

Thanks for any help.
