    the only extra weight is in the boxing plates.the centre bit is prob not a lot more than the originals that came out.

    this is a cruiser and not a racer.it really does stiffen everything up.

    i can get you in next year for a clip

    i get a lot of cements regarding money and folks saying if only they could afford to come here. i dont really understand that.

    i had someone here recently who has worked at a couple of rod shops,and we worked out im between 24 and 55 pounds an hour cheaper than some brand names in the uk.

    thats like getting a free engine and box package on a build,with what you save on labour.

    downside is,you know that old saying,," you pay peanuts,you get !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I split them down to nothing,as it's easier then to clean up the rails ready for boxing.i bolt the original crossmembers in first to take measurements and to set it up on the table at ride height.
    I try to sell off bits,like axles ,wheels etc. Usually I just cut them up and take em to the dump.i put the bits up cheap to sell.money gets taken of owners build,but if no interest within a couple of weeks,it's scrapped,if the owner doesn't want to take it home

    I can't keep everything here and don't like stuff cluttering up space.
