I have a bolt which,after the nut has been threaded on a certain distance,pivots downwards,effectively stopping the nut from running off the bolt. I wonder if anyone knows the name of this type of bolt and,indeed,if they are currently available. I do not relish the idea of making some. It is from a 1920 motorbike.

A photograph, as ever in these situations, would help!

I think it was an idea that did not catch on. Never seen or heard of such bolts in half a century of messing with machinery, including 1920s motorbikes. But also sure would like to see a photo or drawing of such.
I'd say your choices are make your own -- could be an interesting exercise but can't quite visualize it -- or use holes and split pins like most other bikes of the era.
What sort of bike is it from, and what part does it secure?

Sounds like a threaded version of a clevis pin like this one with an end that pivots to lock in place.

I've not seen a threaded version before, but If you Google 'drop nose pin' and select images you'll see plenty of variations.
