LHD Elan Steering Racks - are they worth the postage?

PostPost by: The Cyclist » Mon May 28, 2018 12:07 pm

Through a series of events too complex to repeat I have ended up with a couple of used but good LHD elan steering racks, taken from cars that were re-imported back to the UK from the US. Are they valuable enough to sell, considering the cost of transatlantic carriage?
I am assuming that most LHD Elans are in the US....

Thoughts & comments please.

Geoff,

I would be potentially interested to buy one for my LHD Elan in France (as a spare)...

Could you PM me with your location / price please (I have an address for postage within brexitland).

Do you have any other parts ?

Many thanks

I have been led to believe that a LHD Elan rack is a RHD Climax Elite rack, as one is mounted upside down from the other application.
