Roof Bars

Post by Preacher »

Cant remember seeing any recently however I seem to recall somebody previously selling roof bars. Am looking for a set of roof bars for a '92 K plate hatch, do they exist or are they something from my imagination??

I'm also looking for a set, i DO remember someone selling some a while ago on here but can't remember what happened with them. I'd prefer the type in the ebay ad above rather than the ones on that white one up there ^.
I have zero patience for your tedium.

You may struggle to get something like that as they look a one off 'Bespoke' type to me !

:idea: so if may I suggest, you source an old single bed 'Angle Iron bed-frame' remove the lattice base/springs and adapt onto the standard OE/Thule type one (Like Philip recently purchased) which then would be more suited for furniture removals/transportation, just make sure you don't overload the recommended max. roof-bar weight (My XM ones are 75kg's I don't know what BX ones are as I've never had any) :lol: :-
Philip Chidlow wrote:Bought a Thule roof rack the other day - (£4.99 off eBay!) - and just as well; I have some furniture to move about this weekend. So, the Red Baron gets to sport my genuine BX accessorie Thule roof bars too. I was contemplating having the rack fitted for the Challenge to cart some fuel and an extra spare... but it makes so much wind noise above 60 that I don't think I'll bother :lol:

Anyway, some pics, seeing as it was nice and sunny...
