Yeah, Dreher has them for the R52/57/62/63/11/16 bikes, but not for the R42/47. You might contact Torsten Tausch in Berlin, although I don't remember seeing one on his site, either, but he makes a lot of stuff himself.

Good luck, and let me know how things turn out.

Sorry Peter, Torsten was the

Sorry Peter, Torsten was the last ace up my sleeve. I've got a business card from him with motorrad@torsten-tausch.com as the email. You could also try his telephone: +49 30 9606 48 63. His English is pretty good (better than my German, for sure).

I also tried email contact

I also tried email contact with Torsten early this year re gearbox bushes. I got nowhere, had no reply but a German friend contacted him on my behalf and he then emailed me in German. I have no language skills so replied using google translate, we arranged for my son to buy the parts while visiting Berlin.
He provided a catalogue, I will email a pdf copy to you, and hopefully it could be of use. The catalogue is in german, more comprehensive than the online shop but for all I know could be a Chinese takeout menu, so best of luck.

My son with some German said there was some difficulty understanding each other but all was very pleasant and was shown his bikes.
I have the same email address as Darryl.

Gents I have made contact with Herr Torsten, unfortunatley he dose not have one , so it is either weld up the old one or crank up the lathe and make a new one cheers peter
