WTS: Original MB Top Bow

Post by TwoCar » Tue Jan 12, 2021 8:14 am

Hello.

Needs some work; rivet broke, slight bend to the one bow, some rust repair needed on the one end, some dents and missing a footman loop. The other rivet/hinge works fine.

Asking $650. Sorry, I can not and will not ship it. Please do not ask. Pick up only in central PA. Zip is 17701.
Payment through PayPal as Friends and Family or cash in person.

Thanks for looking.

Hello,

Good luck on the sale !!
A nice original set :D :D

I do have a question for those in the know ?
Are there any " torque off" type simulated "rivet type " bolts available to repair this top bow set?
Like the bolts they have for the bumper gussetts ?

That would make a very nice repair for these top bows.

Are those type bolts that snap off made in this particular size ??



Best Regards,
Ray

Just as an FYI.

Greyhound bus line will ship odd size objects at really reasonable rates. I have used them in the past to ship top bows and seat frames.

Hello Guys.

Thank you for the feedback and kind comments. I'm sure that someone has hoards of these tucked away somewhere, but this is only the 3rd set I've come across over the past 10 years. :-)

@Brett - I tried to use Greyhound before, but the closest terminal is almost 2 hours away.

Take care guys!
