Hi, it might be an idea to let people know exacatly how or why they are incorrect then they can make an offer

the tube is smaller than specified in the book so the holes bottom out on it, but i have been told that many people have used them, i ended up with 2 sets thats y i didnt use them, il try and get some pics up soon

Did Darren tell you this?? Because if so then I would strongly suggest putting up a set of pics, with a load of dimensions on them.

He will say anything to make a sale:mad:

ye did have a bit of a dispute and only got half the order to, but got the cash back on the missing stuff in the end

Which Tube is too small, I think we need a bit more information

georgenewman1 18th November 2009 03:35 PM

Sounds like the ends are being used from the de dion tube.......now I made that for GTS about 6 years ago even though he will suggest otherwise...:D
There should be some cut outs in the 5" dia tube to allow the bolts to miss the tube.

It was done to cut weight as the bigger tube weighed a ton, in fact I made few by rolling 3milly plate instead of buying in huge heavy gauge tube but that got a bit of a ball ache so went for the heavier tube.......:D :D
