Chris,

Sorry, but..............as above and I would only want a single set!

T
Same here, all due credit for the development, but £125 for each side??????

Laser cut and pressed to bend?

I can get my bonnet off in 10mins, and take it off about 3 times a year.....

Hi Guys,

thanks for the comments but to be fair the price is a total guess on my part. The company doesn't want to commit to a price until the prototype is tested, I just know the first set is costing me 'up to' 400 quid.

It's a chicken and egg scenario but I put an absolute top line expected production price for a small batch and hopefully there is enough interest that I can order a batch of 20 or so, and that will bring the price down to something quite reasonable. If not, I'll keep the first set for me and that'll be it.

I'm not a parts company and I won't be making money or going into business, just trying to share with the community. Unfortunately quality costs, which is why the standard hinges are what they are....

Hi Chris,
I would be interested if the price is reasonable, as few said already. So you can add me as a potential buyer.

Hi Guys,

no news on the final price yet, I'm hoping that ordering at least 10 sets will make the price reasonable, but currently waiting on the fabrication company.

I'll post to the tread as soon as I have an update.

Best Regards,
Chris

Had a set of quick release pins fitted a few days ago by Bespoke Performance. Pins were from Demon Tweeks as mentioned on this topic already but they aren't the same. Cost £75 a pair and took about half an hour to fit.

Bit fiddly to release but haven't really tried other than a quick go at Bespoke. Don't think they are available anymore as I bought the last pair and Demon said they'd be £75 a side if made specially.

Nice bit of kit and more substantial than the ones posted on here

Does anyone know if these hinges were made? I am looking for some for my Tamora and will look to get some made if they’re not available.
If anyone did have them would you have any pics of how they worked?
