Sturmey Archer were one of the most common gearboxes in the vintage era. They were fitted to many makes. They made a whole range of gearboxes, two speed, three speed, Featherweight, Lightweight, Heavyweight. That said you won't get far without specifying what particular model of Sturmey Archer is fitted to your Raleigh.
I suggest you start off by identifying what box you have and then buying a spare parts list so you know exactly what you're after. The VMCC Library will be able to help.
Cheers,

Hmm, 12 quid for 4 pages, or that VMCC suggestion...
The VMCC may be able to point you towards someone too.

You appear to have a gearlever ?
Which parts are damaged ?
There are folks who can weld up cases, or even teeth back on, or shafts straightened, if the need is enough.

Probably many of the bits you need will be common to a whole range of various motorcycles. For example I suspect they only made a few varieties of belt pulley because belt drive disappeared pretty quickly in the early 1920's. I'd start off showing what I have to owners of belt drive Triumphs. Belt drive Model H's spring to mind. Basically the belt pulley is fabricated from two pressings and a central splined member. I'd be finding out how Triumph owners repair their belt pulleys and see what is adaptable. Can you reuse your central splined member if you can get the two pressed sheave halves?
I think you'll find the same thing with the gate and lever. S/A started off the 1920's with just a few variations on the gear lever and gate. Things were different later in the 20's when they were mounted up beside the tank.
Best of luck.
