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

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...
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.......
