    Hello all,

    I was browsing around and spotted Fred the monster pics. I would like to know what type of rollbar is installed in this cruiser?

    Mainly interested in the rear areas set up as I do NOT want a full cage just the rear setup.

    I like its looks because you can fit the older style rear jump seats and it just plain looks sweet!

    If it's not something I can purchase, can I get some dimensions / specs?

    I'm a noob around here, but can anyone tell me who the forum owner of Fred is?

    Thanks Guys

    That's Michael Borg's 40. He hung out with the club I belonged to in Idaho. You can probably get him to respond if you post on www.nwcruisers.com forum.

    If you even think about using the stock hoop you need your head examined..

    The stock "roll bar" is some thin stuff. I had to grind off the spreaders the PO had used to put in home brew front hoop. I got a little deep grinding on the factory center hoop and saw how thin it is. Scary that I felt comfortable with that "protecting" me.
