afraid not but there may always be a little man in the orient bashing em out as we speak  :) by the way that is NOT insider knowledge

at the moment mines still cheap enough to buy and sell the bits off seperately and keep the lid  ;) the problem is the £50 postage to u.s. !

They come up on eBay but the price dropped back recently as several senior Schmitters were clearing stock, so there will be a lull. Fortunately a lid is not to critical in the Scootacar. The Schmitt does need one really, despite it fouling most batteries. I think it is another part that ranks in the 'put all the spare ones in the field and there are enough to go round'. Making new ones will merely prove the point so it will be a brave fellow who takes that project on. You could make a replica early lid as that is square tin box not a pressing.

Replicas have been made in the USA, out of fibreglass. My dad ocasionnally sells a restored lid with a new sticker inside (as original).

Probably talking about the same person then, I just remembered USA. I must have mixed it up or something

Have a look on http://www.royalmail.com/ before listing on ebay Richard. You can find the exact costs of posting to UK and the rest of the World including all the "extras" before taking your sales to the Post Office. Rob.

Thanks. Will do that its the extras that got me nothing at po easy now and the leaflets don't cover much. Insurance is huge and you don't know what an item will sell for . Made a note of the link
