I got one several years ago that I put on my 1974 Cub. Back then, I called and talked to someone at Howard and they found a seal and I bought it. He said it was the last one in the US that he could find.

Here are the pics that Tom Clark asked me to post for him of his freshly paint Howard CD-6 with decals.
Here is his brake bracket extension:

And here is the Despeeder:

Tom has been waiting for warm weather to finish up his project. I'd say it was worth the wait! Great job Tom. ( but with another week of +90F, I'm ready for winter again ) :wink:

Redcub, is it possible to get a drawing of the handle you made? Has anyone found a source for the decals? I have two cubs, one with the speed reducer.

Jim, Welcome to the Forum. I live between Longmont and Berthoud. You're invited to my Cubfest Sept. 11-12. Hopefully you'll get a quick answer to your questions.

Jim, I didn't make a batch of handles due to a lack of interest/commitment from FC.com members. I found a local guy that makes patterns and casts old parts, but the $$$ cost to do so made me think twice. The handles are notorious for breaking when people over tighten the bolt at the bottom. Most guys are just fabing one themselves.

I sent you a Private Message ( P.M. ) regarding decals, as selling is verboten in the forums.
