broken door handle

Anyone have suggestions for finding a new door handle for a 1978 Boler? Can't locate one and the metal latch is broken off on ours. Have not figured out an alternative either!

It would help if you posted a picture.

Early bolers had the same handles that Scamp still uses today.

Boler door: canned ham alternatives

I'm in the same boat. My rivets were pulling out of the inside shell of the door, so now my goal is to find or fab some sort of replacement that will be functional, lockable, and still look decent. I'd also like it to be easy to source parts for in the future if something goes wrong; a quality that the "Canned Ham" door latch we share tends to lack.

I'm going to try a residential door handle set and see how much work it would require to have it fit securely. I'll post an update once I've tooled around a bit.
