I have seen the same/simular frame although several years old, go for just over 100 on ebay without the self righting gear.This one must be worth 300-400 for the frame as its new.The self righting gear must be worth 250-300 to the right person but i bet theres not certificate or warenty if there was it would all be worth 1000 to the right person .Older used ones do come up its just never when your looking

I have several roll-bars available, all in SS, pictures and size on request.

And a Nautinox 1969 one - see their catalog on line - very nice with its nicely curved tube, width is registrable, can be folded forward

What's even more amazing is the amount for postage - 90.00 - we sent a 30kg parcel late last year for 25.00 (by courier) - it was very heavy and a very odd shape - so struggling to understand why this is so much - I'm assuming the self righting gas would need to be empty for the courier to collect - perhaps due to this it needs special arrangements??

I think its more to do with the size of it. Health and safety porobably means you need two people to lift it at both ends of the journey.

Ahhh okay - I've probably underestimated how much it weighs

Its to do with whether you can get your hands round it to carry it, could be really light but if its too big they have you over a barrel.

Poor courier nearly put his back out with that winch, lol.

Poor bugger - it's very odd as we had to state the parcel size and weight - you'd think form that - over 20kg's - they would work out it was a bit on the heavy side

Bugger that is expensive - we must have got off lightly with the winch

Can't lift the console on your own due to the dimensions so it goes up again.
