Is this for the 2005 FL65 you mentioned previously? Or an older one?

It's for the 2005 FL 65. But I did remove the original pneumatic handle; want to install the vintage manual handle.

Folks, this member is in Germany, I seriously doubt there are any US buses in the junkyards over there. If anyone can course a used one for them, they would have to obtain it locally, then ship it to them... I will poke around a bit but I can't guarantee anything, as the one yard I knew might have one closed down recently.

@BrewerBob told me about a bus scrapyard in Maryland that's about an hour away from me, but I can't remember what the name of it was.

Junkyards for buses here in Germany- no chance. I estimate we have only less than 50 US school buses running here. Mobile homes mainly.

Can someone send me some pictures of the door handle with dimensions (lengthes); maybe I can find someone to build it by ourself. Should not be too difficult...
