Does anyone reproduce this optional accessory?

The knob looks like a sheriffs badge and it's slightly domed.

I swear I've seen them around - any ideas?

Damper

This was the damper fitted to my R52 when I got the bike.
I removed it as I did not think it was original.
Does not look much like a sheriffs badge.

Looks right

I think I was thinking of a different damper when I wrote that - The one you are showing looks like what I'm looking for - Would you consider selling it? If so, drop me a line at vintagebmw@me.com

Thanks

Jeff

My 1930 R11 has the sheriffs

My 1930 R11 has the sheriffs badge type and a few years ago a German dealer had them listed. I don't remember who,but probably still available somewhere.
