1987 540R Knobs??

So, I got a 1987 540R after Christmas and the Black on the knobs is really worn. I'm not sure exactly what the knobs were called on the 1987's, so I'm not sure if Rich has any. There the big bulky metal dome knobs with a bit of a flattened top, if you don't know what I'm talking about.

If you mean the ones with the 3 rings,they are super rare and no longer made,affectionately known as beehive knobs.
The rubber rings are just grommets for taps(faucets?),head to your local hardware store and find the sizes you need in the plumbing area.I found a pack here in Australia that had all the sizes needed.

No not those. Those were on the '88's or so I believe. These are the ones I need, but with better finish on them:

I don't think you have to get an exact copy of it. i think any metric knob will fit. drop rich a line, he can point you in the right direction!

Yeah, but I want to see If I can buy originals before I buy some other knobs. I want to see if I can keep it as original as I can. I'll shoot an email to Rich now.
