No, just got a bit lost. Same link, same page but don't scroll down as the details on that page are only a selection of the catalogue. Near the top of the page is a .pdf file of the Feb09 pricelist, you need that. Then as said go to page 2 of that .pdf file.

Thanks for starting this thread, it has been interesting.

Sorry I didn't get back to this vic. I see just4tehalibut has pointed you in the rifgt direction. My bad. It was the pdf catalog.

part RE-4 is 1/4" part RE-5 is 5/16" rod end.

Just letting you all know, the cable tie version of the mesh seat has endured the test of time, and the bike rides like a dream. I haven't painted it yet, as I'm too keen to ride it when I have the time. I ended up putting on a shorter pair of forks, and a dragster front wheel with a rounded tyre. It handles brilliantly now.

It's really hard to tear down the bike to paint. How do I know? Used mine probably 18 months before I finally did it.

What width cable ties did you use. On two bikes I usd the wide ones about 8mm I guess. The new one uses 5mm nearer 4.8 mm ones but I used them pretty close together. I used Poiter's idea of brake cable outer in the sleeves.

I am using 5mm, using Poiter's system. They break occasionally, but I keep a stash on board. I don't trim them either, they just flap in the wind.
