    Rose joints, because they are cheaper than adjustable urethane bushes, bizarrely.

    If I buy some new tubing suitable to take a 1/2" or 5/8" unf thread, what wall thickness and / or minimum OD would you advise?

    Starting to think tapping my own tubes might just be too much hassle?

    we use 1" tube from rally design with their threaded weld in bungs. 5/8 bungs to take 5/8" x 1/2" (bolt size through the eye) 'rose' joints also from rally design. the tube bends nicely if needed with no kinks which can be handy.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    It's very nice.
    I'm only doing it myself because every penny counts.
