    Lightbulb 1st Gen Grab Handle Savers

    I didn't want to pay $70+ for new cushions/ grab handles. I couldn't find any nice enough @ local salvage yards. So I had some of these made. They cut me a deal since they wanted to use up a piece of stainless they already had.

    I need $18/ pair shipped, via PayPal. They're laser cut & CNC bent.




    It cost me $90 to have 6 pair made. I have 5 pair to sell so we can all pay around the same. PM me your # or email bosbor15@yahoo.com.

    Thanks,

    I been making some like this for years out of aluminum. They also help when tweeding the handle to keep the tweed from pulling loose in the handle.

    I could have some made; I have friends with expensive tools. I would have to go to the salvage yard to find one & take some measurements...

    If it's not a huge hassle, that would be great.
