Am attempting a sympathetic restoration on my little fella (read cleaning it up a bit). Gear lever was looking a bit manky (well it Is 52 years old) and some of the chrome has gone AWOL. Thought I would see how much a replacement lever is here in the UK so rang David Silver Spares as it wasn’t listed on their website. Not available. The part fits 26 different models and
Tire Wheel Automotive fuel system Fuel tank Automotive lighting

is not available. Discontinued. Unobtainium. There was a crowd on US EBay offering new ones made in Taiwan that would fit for 50 bucks plus shipping but were the wrong shape anyway.
So I bought a tin of modeller’s chrome enamel paint and will touch it up. Not sure how it will last but I have no intention of riding this beauty in bad weather. I will post before and after photos in the next couple of days and you folks can tell me what you think.
