At present I have a Velo gearbox in my 39 Clubman, due to Australian historic registration rules I may have to change to an origonal Scott box, as yet I have’nt been sprung, Are Scott boxes available and about how much would I expect to pay.

If you do not get a response from this message board, I suggest you get an advert put in Yowl and contact Steve Enticott to run a wanted ad in the next newsletter. I discussed your requirement with my colleague Eddie Shermer who works with us on transmissions. We agreed that although it would be possible to make a new gearbox, it would be a lengthy process as all the internals that remain in the Holder stock have been effected by the heat of the Trickett fire and are soft. By the time they are sorted, cleaned, hardened, cleaned again and then built into a box, this runs away with time and thus money. You also did not say if you had a Scott clutch to go with ant Scott gearbox you might obtain. There are no clutch basket / drum components at Holders and we cannot afford the cost of having a batch made. I have suggested that this is something that the spares scheme might look at in the future. A survey of how many owners might be interested might be helpful. Your most cost effective hope is that someone has a unit you can buy complete. Nothing is impossible to make, but such things are often not economically viable.
I bought a 3 speed gearbox on a vintage motorcycle flea market
last year. The inner part seems to be okay, but the cask cover for the
box is welded. I also have a matching kick starter. So if you are
Interested in let me know.
Some pictures are also no problem.
I think I paid about 250 GBP for the box. At the moment it is
stored well at my attic. A matching clutch is also available.
I think Alex is describing a gearbox case front cover that has some broken bosses. This is a common problem and can be fixed ok.
There are some new cases and covers, but they always need checking over to be sure there are no errors.
