Bronze Doll's Head gearbox

-JdK- Luis in Luxembourg sent these pictures of his Norton's doll's head gearbox that looks completely correct and original but surprisingly seems to be cast in bronze. It's quite heavy which rules out light metals such as magnesium or electron as used on post war racers.

Of interest, we have a rather special 596cc International Norton on this website that has crankcases cast in bronze.
