126 bis - gear knob
« on: November 19, 2019, 02:58:45 PM »
Hi everyone,

My gear knob is looking a little worse for wear and I'd like to spruce it up. Does anyone know where I can find a 126 bis original, or even a pattern which matches? I've had a look on the usual parts sites and of course eBay.. the only knobs there are either generic or just have a logo on them. I am after one with the gear tree on it.

Thanks
Dan.

Awesome. That's the ticket. Thanks ever so much!

EDIT - Unfortunately :( the first post is from many years ago and the second one won't ship to the UK.

I may make one myself, could be an interesting project.

Dan.

Surprised they won't ship to the UK when it says they will. But hey ho, here's some more places:

https://www.sprzedajemyczesci.pl/pl/katalog/szczegoly-produktu/galka-lewarka-fiat-126p-126p-fabrdluga-szt-fiat/fiat/4380464/3275231

http://sklep.euroforin.eu/galka-dzwigni-zmiany-biegow-f126p-flbis-p-4565.html

The trick is if you know the part number (in this case 4380464) you can simply google "fiat 4380464" and find obscure bits. Sometimes doing a google image search of "fiat 4380464" helps too.

Aha great, thanks for those links!

The eBay one surprised me too, it didn't tell me I couldn't receive the item until the checkout stage.

Hey Dan, whereabouts are you based?  Not many of us in the West Mids, I'm Telford.

Also Dan

Hi Dan, excellent name!

I'm around the green and pretty land of.. Dudley. Quite often travel between here and Burton-upon-Trent too.

Cool, drop me a line if you are going to any local shows next year. I'll definitely be going to the Auto Italia show in Bridgnorth next time.
