    Default Gear knob

    I have a 75 V8 tourer with a broken somewhat flimsy gear knob ie the plastic crome button mount has broken off. I'd like to keep it orginal if pos but if not any suggestions on a suitable replacement would be appreciated, I've seen the forum suggestions re BMW but they operate differently as the button is on the front of the knob, mine is on the top.

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    I think that is unique to the R75V8. The individual parts of the knob do not appear to be available separately, but I suppose you could have that part 3D printed? The chrome would be a problem of course. Complete knobs do come available now and then. I found one, but had to pay 55 for it 3 years ago IIRC. I have a spare therefore, but I don't intend to sell it. Sorry.

    Just checked, and the chap who sold me the new knob a few years back was Lee Stott in Birmingham. I have contacted him via Facebook/Messenger in the past I see, and he may possibly have a source of another one. I know for sure he had more as late as September 2019. Worth a try?
