Hi, Anyone know where i can source a short length of about 50-100mm of the above at a reasonable price please?
I have found a 150mm solid bar and then machine out the excess but it'd be nice to need to machine it.

I have 140mm x 10mm wall :apologetic:

Oooh that's so close ill remeasure just in case. How much is it and can you cut to size?

How much do you need, I can cut but will be with a bandsaw/jigsaw so will not be accurate, you will have to clean up.
Maybe be possible to part off in my lathe with a bit of jiggery pokey, :sneakiness: how accurate do you need

Lets say 75mm of tube. This will give me 5mm for cutting and adjustment.

I hope you meant 75mm lol :)

Yup i did. edited....
Think the bike would fall over with 75m stuck to the side of it

Have dragged it out of my loft where it has been for ~50yrs
May not be what you want now that I have got it where I can measure it. I guess it is actually 5.5" od with .375 wall ( 149.5 x 9.6 )
I don't know the spec but it rings quite well and machines OK, it was an off-cut from the switch arms at a large sub-station.
~80mm would be £10 in the post.

Cool its worth a shot for a tenner :thumsup: Paypal ok for you?
How much of it do you have? I might have the rest if it fits

PayPal OK, same as my addr. PM your address to send to.
Got about 240mm left, also have ~450mm x 118 OD x 110 ID. from same source.
