    Here are a couple of pictures of the Cobra at an East Midlands meet back in March 2015. The owner back then went by "Marsh" on this forum.

    I have solid bushes holding my rack in place. Not sure where they came from but they've been on the Cobra about 30 years. I did replace the U-bolts and Nylocks some years ago.

    Hi Fred,

    Have you found a chassis number?
