Chris, will let you know about roll cage, have a couple of options.

Done a bit more in past week or so.

New end plates on cross member and then reglassed it all back in.

Thought I'd get involved here!
I'm at a similar stage with mine. I got a drawing of a roll cage from Allan Scott, and will be looking at commissioning one soon. There is a guy in Norwich, quite near to me, who makes them for short track racers, and assuming he can use the CDS tube and work to MSA guidelines, should offer a solution. I'm not ready for the cage yet so will keep you posted. The big boys of this particular industry are expensive, and seem to want to weld it in.

Bit more done, air box now complete as well.

With regards roll cages, back in 94 when I built Granny Smith (DH8351) I got the tubes from the rollcentre and fitted it all my self.  Seen a few bad crashes in the passing years so the roll cage will not be cheap, after all it may save my life one day.

Hello,

Graham just a thought.. so you may smell burning! just wondering if your man in Norwich would possibly do a small run of them? (Bolt type) as I'd certainly be interested in one and it may reduce the over all cost with a few of them. What sort of spec is your cage? Full multi point?
Or if you would be willing to copy your designs (at a price if it's cost you of course )I'd also be interested it that.

Don't know if you can view this, it's a build by Nicolas Pinon in France, cage was made by Endaf Owens.
