The 1937/38 rocker box was quite fragile, many will be found broken at the top where the top screw holds the half egg shell type cap. Probably due to rough treatment trying to remove the cheese head slotted screw. Finding one intact will not come easy. I suggest you get the box repaired by a Lumiweld expert. When we had such a person demonstrate Lumiweld at a section meeting, we were shown a bike engine completely smashed, before and after pictures.

sorry but we do not allow wanted ads in our general forum pages. If I moved it to the part of the forum where wanted ads are allowed as a guest member you would not be able to see it. You are welcome to place a wanted ad which costs £5 for guests.

Mark you can sell bikes, spare parts or place wanted ads by going to the advert part of the website. Adverts are free for paid up club members but cost £5 through paypal for guests. These adverts are published in the next copy of the club magazine and reach a much wider audience as many members do not use the website.
Paid up members also have another alternative which is in the members only section of the forum where we do allow adverts in a specific section but these adverts do not get into the club magazine.

Certainly ebay them but if they sell for more than £50 it will cost you more money than advertising here. Ours is a one off payment no final value fee.
