Looks like I have one excellent leaf spring and one bodged up mess. I would like to find a used one in restorable condition. Apparently they fit Bugeyes from '58 on and Midgets up to '64.

Shipping may be an issue as I am in eastern Canada... but who knows.

Adrian,
I’ll keep an eye out for one down this way. Peter Ploof might know of a source up your way as well.
Good luck, Rut

Thanks Rut! Not an emergency... I do have the cobbled one to hold the corner up for now.

The main leaf and "safety leaf" look good on the bad one also. Someone stuck in 1/4" thick leaves in place of a bunch of the stock ones.
I could probably make a good spring if I had even a poor second one to cannibalize.

Here is one that was in a batch of stuff that I got when I recently bought my Bugeye. It has a broken bottom spring and plenty of rust. The company I work for sends building products to the east cost & up to the Toronto area. If you're interested, let me know & I'll see what I can work out or even see about shipping it. Leno

That one looks a little far gone Layne. Thank you for looking though.

Check bay. I saw a couple of ads for leaf springs.
