If the correct Burman box for 37, I had 2 batches made. Some went to the club, all sold now. You could approach the club via Chairman Roy to get a batch made he knows a company near me that would make them, be warned, not cheap to make. The club do not want slow moving parts parts that would sit on the shelf for ages. From requests I only get for this part, they would sell out within about a year, if I inform people the club have them in stock. However, as the club now only sell parts to club members, this will not happen. So not possible to estimate how long the club could get stuck with them.

I am also after one, rare as hens teeth it would seem. Was going to make one myself but can't find a drawing.
If someone has a drawing and is happy to let me have a copy i will get some made.

Did you get the GPS speedo info, could answer our problems. At present my petrol tank is leaking this will come first.
As 1937 bikes must have a speedo, I bought a Garman edge 25 GPS from Halfords this will cover the legal side

I didn't get the info unfortunately. I have bought a cheap wireless push bike speedo for now, doesn't really look the part but keeps us legal.
Hope you find a drive soon, i shall probably wait until the summer and go round all my local auto jumbles.
