Yeah there is; I've seen them on fleebay from time to time. Or you could give Webcon a call - they are specialists in Weber and Solex carbs.

Have a look at a thread I posted about six months ago entitled "Manual Choke Conversion Kits"
http://bxclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php ... ight=choke
The web site is now defunct but the telephone number is included and it might be worth giving it a ring.

I did mine about five months ago --- I make lots of short trips so it makes a big difference to me. I used a Powertrain kit which I got from eBay for about £10 and I'm quite pleased with it.

If you decide to go ahead with a conversion, I have a tip which can save quite a bit of time.
