Default OEM & OEM Replica Soft Top Bows for sale

Hi All,

I've got 7 sets of OEM soft top bows (Pakistani army bows, so they have the additional brackets/bracing for soft amby doors as well) & two sets of OEM Replica bows (additional soft amby brackets as well) for sale.

One set of the replica bows has been cut/sleeved & is currently held together with machine screws & could be run that way, but really should be welded up properly for best performance. The other replica set is uncut.

All oem bows are uncut, and range from being in really great shape, to needing some work & being best for a cruiser head with some skills.

I'm going to be selling from $600-$1,000usd plus shipping (depending on which set you want) for, "out of towners" that have to pay via paypal & I have to crate/ship. So for the local people here that can pay cash, I can sell them at $525-$925usd, again depending on which set.

They were sanded/primered in Pakistan, but the primer is mediocre at best. There is some rub wear & such from their time on the water, so there are some bare spots. You could spot treat, rattle can & run them if you like. If you have a nice truck, I would say go the whole route with sandblast & power or good paint. I'm going to spot treat & rattle can mine, as all my trucks are full of, "patina" & need a resto anyway.

IF anyone is intereted in more info, I'll post up some pics & such. Or, feel free to PM me or hit me up via e-mail as well.

Best,
Abe

How much would you take for the compromised set? Any viable trades? I'm two canyons south of you.

Sorry I can't make your day, but as you already guessed, nope. I don't have anything super old/early. But we could try to have them made if anyone has a set to knock off...
best,
Abe

Hey Spectre,
By compromised, I'm assuming that you are talking about the cut/sleeved set. If I"m wrong, please let me know & I'll amend. As a point of clarification, people cut/sleeve these bows intentionally to save on shipping costs. They weren't damaged in any way. For a local, cash transaction (no paypal fees) I could sell that set for $525. Pics below for you, or anyone else that might be interested.
Best,
Abe

Hey Ige,
Sorry for the slow response! I'd be willing to work with you & possibly split up a set of bows & only sell you the rear half (not the main bow, but everything from it back), but I don't really want to get into parting out parts of bows & all that. I"m sure you could find a buyer for the extra pieces on Mud though, if not here, and I could help you with shipping if you need it.

Let me know what you think!

Best,
Abe
