Hi, yes I do but they charge to receive money, which is why I would prefer bank transfer.  Paypal fees would be 60p on ?11.20 so it would be ?11.80.  If you are happy to pay the extra then you can send it to alan.c.jones@o2.co.uk.  If you want to pay by bank transfer the I will PM you my nank details.

I fitted the tie down strap today.  Works great.  Take 5 minutes to fit.  Simply put the front brake on and rock forward whilst at the same time puling on the strap.  Do that a few times and forks are compressed.  Pulled the front end down by 40mm.  Have a look at the photos, the black tape marks where it was compressed to, so the stanchion showing above is how much it is pulled down by.

Hi All, does anyone want one of these tie down staps?  Megawatt has one, and I have listed a couple on ebay at ?12 plus postage, but price to anyone on here is cost at ?9 plus ?2.20 postage.  If you want to pay by Paypal it would be ?11.80.

Here is a couple of pictures

Here is a link to the ebay listing, more information on there so worth reading, especially about radially mounted callipers and the size of the holes in the anchor plates

OK, so I have now sold 7 straps, 4 on ebay and three on here, Megawatt, SFC and 1 reserved for Chris.  So there are three left, anyone wanting one let me know otherwise I will list the rest on ebay.  Can't wait to try this out, bring on summer.
