    Fused junction boxes for old bike

    Anyone know of a good looking 4 or 6 way connector block that would look okay exposed under the seat of a 50's single saddle BSA?

    I've looked at the Narva and Hella ones but they are plastic and look cheap.

    I'd also consider using the case of the original Lucas mechanical regulator but don't have one.

    Anyone got an old MCR2 I could gut, or know of a custom motorcycle place that does nice electrical junction blocks?

    you could try something like the lucas regs the MK1 escorts had you would fit a modern fuse box inside one of those but if its 50's bsa why not in the toolbox

    The Lucas car regulators are quite a bit bigger in the base and taller than the bike ones, but I see where you're going...

    That Holden one looks like a good style of case. Could get a bunch of plastic junk in there and hide it.

    No tool box found yet. It's a C10L. The tinware is hard to find. Only made for four years out of leftovers when the sidevalve engines and the plunger frame components needed to be used up.

    Part Bantam, part C10, part money pit.

    Kinda outside the square, but looks compact and robust: https://nz.rs-online.com/web/p/base-...lders/8949622/
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...
    Brakes as new

    My old man had a Ariel colt which was the 200cc ohv valve version of the C10.bOnly with a Burnham box rather than BSA's nice 4 speed lightweight box.
    Pretty surethe C11 one would be similar to the c11 plunger one. colt frame anf forks looks the same, but the tinware is different.
    Old tinware for that sort of stuff is hard you might have to make it, Grumph know a guy very good.retired but still into doing stuff.
    Your other ption is finding a similar shape biscuit tin and modding it.
    or swap meet scouring bsa club etc or EBAY
    or borrow one or make a close lookalike and get a fibreglass copy made

    heres ya reg too
    https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/mot...2815bc10fea4a8 a bit exp though

    ps your other option for hiding modern stuff is inside a old battery stiffed with a new lipo
    the original battery is about the size of the cylinder and head.
