I'm struggling along with a 1923 750T - the 8hp overhead-inlet- valve shaft-drive four. I too am missing small parts, like the tool box. Just today I have been trying to rescue my inlet mainfold (same as the M50 I think), which has been heavily modified long ago.

There are a number of people who have nice parts for early FNs, for example www.mechanische-werkstatt-luedersfeld.de , but I don't know of anyone who does parts for the late model fours.

I might have a pair of 750T foot boards, but they are reproduction and not very good!

Cheers

Leon

I just had a look and M50 foot boards are quite different from the 750T type that I have. Sorry.

Here's a picture of a 750T with the toolbox I'm looking for under the seat. My model is a year later, 1923, with the girder front fork, but otherwise the same.
