        If its not a concourse bike and doesn't need to stay original I'd advise to replace it with something else completely. A lot of guys swap out the box for a 4 speed from pre-unit Triumphs

          There are some clever fellows about in Perth, just about anything can be repaired and even improved - for a price. Can you post a picture of what's broken? I'd bet an engineering firm such as Embleton Engineering in Myaree would be able to render it servicable again.

            Apparently this thread is worth a gander.

              Do you have a manual/part number for the selector fork?

                I visited this place while I was in California. Real old school but I suppose there's a million of them in America. Most of his parts were covered in dust but he looked like he had a lot of stuff. Hes a Vet and his Vietnamese (I think) partner does haircuts for $7. I wanted to go to the dodgy bar next door but my brother was too chicken because we were on Ducatis.
