Leeway Ribs

Hi all Rib People, Just to introduce myself as the new manufacturer of the range of Leeway Ribs, made on the Isle of Wight. Our concept is to remain as producers of quality, fast and competitive ribs without the frills. Please look at our new web site at www.leewayribs.co.uk to find more information. Our new demonstrator will be available to view at the end of November. Look forward to hearing from you. Richard P

Richard,

Welcome to the forum. Can I strongly encourage you to sign up for trade membership to keep the right side of the rules: Guidelines for commercial posting. I think Lee used to be a member but it seems to have expired now.

Before responding to any threads you might want to make sure you've appraised yourself of the "history" by looking back through some of the Leeway threads, as its fair to say there is a degree of controversy surrounding your new business venture!

Finally, Lee's consoles, seat pods etc were always regarded to be good value for money - are you supplying these too?

Hi Admin Man, Thanks for the advice...will become a trade member soonest. We just want to produce good ribs and not be involved in any controversy...whats history is history. Yes we can and will produce any or all of the consols, seating etc that Lee used to produce...As you say they are good value. Richard P

Richard - Are you aware of the history of the design of the Leeway RIBs?
