    They are a lot more complex than the pattern currently being copied hence why people probably don't make them.

    The type fitted to this bike is the pattern I want but if you saw an original example you would see that they are a bit more complex than appear in the picture.

    Ok, I seem to be able to post again!!

    Here are my pictures of the gunclips, but looking at them, it will be very expensive to make them! need to make press fittings, so a batch of 20-30 or so would make it justifyable, but don't have the cash to start anything right now.




    Leatherwork is also elaborate.



    Rear one:




    So one might be better of buying the bike on Ebay!

    Cheers,

    Lex

    Rifle clips ?

    What's wrong with string ?

    It would have been better to fasten it on the left side because of the bolt thinghy sticking out.
    Yes, it looks like a Dutch bike.
    Still a thing which winds us up because the germans stole a lot of them.

    Hi Ron your right, just got the rack back from the blasters today & its stamped:

    Its very very faint & so I can't get a photo of it but I think that's what it reads ?
