Actually, those guys on your side of the border do really nice work too. That's where my mooring bitt came from.

You all are a bunch of clowns. Negotiate with China, seal the deal with West-by-God Virginia. \

Y'all tap your breaks. I'm in heavy negotiations with China to duplicate these windshield brackets. Don't screw this deal.


CHINA..:laughing: really.........they will probably rust if they get wet, or worse melt if they see sunlight, and need too be replaced every six months........lets keep this North American........Quality is the goal.......Dependability is the drive.........

Those would look good on my Flyer, how tall are they? Am very interested, if a casting session happens. Could be a great excuse for me to head to Darbyville if there was a Canadian order to deliver.


they are 5 1/4" tall.........the groove for the Lexan is 6 1/4".........
excuse away, brackets or not.........Darbyville is open.......:biggrin:

If some hillbilly from WV said he would cast them, I'll finance the work. Of course this is predicated on the originals being mounted on the rear deck for rear steering. Just sayin.

...doin some himmin and hawwin on what i am gonna do for this creation.......great for catchin minnows maybe or add a couple speakers........soround sound.....


That seat back is a pretty simple part. It might be easier to just make a new one with no holes, than to patch that one. I pretty much gave up on trying to fix the one my welder bodged up, and will probably end up going that way.
