Roll Bar

PostPost by: Famous Frank » Tue Feb 18, 2020 3:34 am

Wanted, an original 26R Roll Bar. See pic.

I will not be racing this car as new Roll Bars are far superior to the originals but I would like restore mine to the original way it left the factory.

Thank you,
Frank

I'm doing the same frank. Have you contacted AC minds in Japan? They have a few.
Best regards, Peter

Elan Peter,

I've been to the AC Minds web site and the pics and story provided by ken Andersen is fantastic, but I don't know how to contact AC Minds? Have you ever email them or do you just call them?

Thanks, Frank

Does anyone have mechanical drawings of this Roll Bar? I can then make them up. Or if anyone has an original make we could join together and make some drawings. It's one of the simplest designs I have ever seen.

Thank you, Frank

Frank, one of the managers of AC minds is on Facebook and is on our type 26 forum. If you ask on there, I'm sure he'd reply.
