It was probably available in France, as it`s 100% metric.Having just read Paul Ennis' article in MPH 669, I jalouse that the reason for the "Landrover" gearbox being bigger, and therefore "impure", is that it holds nylon gears, not steel, and they have to be bigger. I know that some right angle boxes do contain nylon gears, because I've had them strip, on other (lesser...) bikes. In turn, that suggests is that what one needs to be looking for is a treasure trove of pre-1954 Landrover speedo spares, c/w right-angle boxes with steel gears. At 1954 prices........
I know that the 5" speedo was made by Smith exclusively for Vincent (PEI says so) but am guessing that the gearbox was an off-the-shelf item.
