Another item hopefully to go to someone on here who can use them rather than listing on flea bay  ;D

A pair of brand new, unused Goodridge stainless steel overbraded brake hoses. Bought these as a full set, front and back, from Heritage at a cost of 84.   They are sold specifically for swing axle rear but front disc caliper conversions.

I wanted to replace the CSP supplied caliper brake hoses I had on my buggy with stainless overbraided as a way around an iva issue. However I now realise that the CSP caliper carrier is placed such that the caliper sits much lower down from the hub cenre line as is those on a Standard VW disc set up. This means the hose I needed had to be longer .  So I fitted the rears and these fronts are redundant.

Goodridge are of the highest quality and British made. Not looking to make my fortune. 25.00 and I will pay the postage. (Within standard UK post code areas that is)   ;-)up ;-)up

If the issue is potential abrasion spiral wrap as used for cabling may be a solution

Hi Doon......   Abrasion is the root cause problem but coupled with this is having a 450mm long hose dangling about exposed to anything a wheel can toss at it.  Stainless overbraid is looked for front and back. (This despite CSP brake hoses being fully TUV approved).  I have come across a company that providees custom requests for brake hoses. They proved to be remarkably cost effective and they are made in Britain..  Google HEL

As for spiral wrap..... You have no idea how many metres of this I have used... Will take some pictures to show where it is needed. Everything is about abrasion from pipework to all wiring.

Take care and keep safe. Paul

I used to use a great mot bloke who suggested it as protection, not an MOT failure but as a bit of insurance
