Elan +2S 130 Crashpad wanted

PostPost by: hastu » Thu May 12, 2022 12:08 pm

Unfortunately, the crashpad (050 B 0230) of my Elan +2S 130 Pistachio is in very poor condition.
A replacement does not seem to be available from any supplier, or does anyone know a supplier who can deliver?
Or who has a crashpad in good condition without cracks, or even just a good ABS version available, which I could then cover myself?

Yes, I have a brand new one that I will not now be using.

But, define 'crash pad'? What was/is sold as a crash pad is but the flimsy shell into which you are meant to insert the original foam that has been removed from the original... What I am saying is that you do not buy the complete thing ready to use. See some threads in the archives about how simple, or not, it is to use these shells.

If this is what you want, then, yes.

Thanks for the info and the offer.
The problem is primarily the foam. Covering the surface would probably not be such a problem.
I'll read the threads on the subject and then get back to you.
