Looking for a set of cheap side pods

Anything considered in just about any condition as I am looking to probably chop them up for a project I have

What have you got out there   :-\

I can sort you out a couple  of these side pods (which are from a 12" chop buggy as I know you have a hustler), they are £130 a pair in solid colour




I know when we spoke you also mentioned the California pods due to the inlet shaping on the side.  Gary Martin has the moulds for those.

Thanks Gordon, certainly something to consider

I`m ideally looking for something though with a vent / scoop or aperture as contemplating some side slung radiators

But if I have to end up with a large bonnet style scoop, then the ones shown could be a viable option

Dave..... ram air scoops readily avaiable, all shapes and sizes in, metal, abs etc.  Cut hole in pod just where you want it. Bond pod to rear. Sand edge to a curve to suit your taste. A tad of isopon maybe and finish off with aerosol paint, (Dosn`t have to be green either).  ;-)up ;-)up ;)

Meyers Manx do vented pods but shipping from Portugal would cost $$$
