    Roll cage options

    Anyone know of anything off the shelf i can get, ideally in the UK?

    just after a simple bolt in roll cage for now, as i'm taking it on track over the winter and don't like the idea of it landing on my face :lol:

    nothing off the shelf in the UK I would personally find a place local ish to custom make you one importing anything is mega due to the dimensions of the cage making delivery costs horrendous, priced up a basic 4 point cage for Mike with the white beat delivered it came to nearly 600 that was the flat packed version with the rear legs detachable

    This design makes a lot of sense.



    Past Hondas:
    1960 125cc Honda Benly CB92R
    1964 305cc Super Hawk CB77, the only vehicle I have ever bought new in my life!
    Honda CB160, roadraced as 175cc 1967-1970.
    Honda Lawnmower, bought used in 2003, caught fire and melted in 2005.

    not really, would do next to nothing in a crash, that's a style bar not a roll bar, there's no rear diagonals, you'd need a min of a 4 point cage to be remotely effective, that's a 2 point :lol:

    cars booked in for november at this place incase anyone else is interested - http://www.robinson-race-cars.co.uk/

    What design of a cage are you going for? And will it be weld in or bolt in design?

    4 point and weld in, with harness bar. i've designed and built a few before but the beat is a tight one to package so i'll be handing it over to my friend who's a bit more capable

    there will be the option to take it further, but for now i just need roll protection

    That should be nice, make sure to get lots of pics..

    Have you see some of the full cage designs where they bolt over onto the windscreen surround.. Could be a handy addition to the cage in future

    yeah, that's essentially just a full cage.

    eventually i'll go down that route but it's not essential at this stage.

    this is a cage he's just completed on my other friend's 600hp golf
