Custom Metal Straps

Hi Folks

Can anyone recommend a company that can manufacture a couple of stainless steel custom straps to hold a round dry sump tank to a bulkhead holder?

They would need to be around an 25mm wide & 350mm long.

I've seen this company across the pond -

If you were to start with a pair of t-bolts you could probably do it fairly easily.

Give Ralph a shout. But buying a pair to start with to get the threaded fittings might be easier/cheaper than trying to fabricate the heap from scratch.

Or maybe Pete could do the same ?

Is welding brackets to the tank to bolt it on not an option ?

I have just fixed my tank on my car. I used stainless strapping purchased from a certain auction site. Very secure and smart. Also, very reasonable priced. You can make to the size you want. Hope this helps.

Lambretta straps look the job for me! £15 a pair and plenty long enough to modify as Steve says!

Thanks folks!
