I'm trying to get some made and it would be cheaper to make more than one.

I would definitely be interested. Were these a VW accessory in Australia or produced locally in Australia? They are cool and functional and I would like to have one. Thanks.

Crofty,

Do you know how sturdy those are? I cant tell from the photos. Is there a spot that they brace up against the nose behind the wheel? I might be interested depending on price.

Actually we don't see many 'roos here in New England. I don't think I ever saw more than a few out west either and most of those were in a Foster's ad.

They're good for protesters too. I live pretty close to Berkeley andd SF and it might come in handy more often than it would back east. I might give it a try during Critical mASS.

Looks good, I like the idea of being able to mount my spare up front without having to drill holes into the body. It also looks like it might make a good bike rack. Could I get mine powder coated in white? I would like to know a price too, looks interesting. - Thanks- Ron

I was thinking the same thing as Ron- I want the spare tire out of the cabin, but I really don't want to drill holes in the nose of the bus and deal with the rubbed off paint/ rust issue.

I figure if you had it bolt onto one of the frame "horns" (where the frame splits into a Y shape) it should be plenty strong enough to support the tire and thump Roos. You would have to cut the tie down loops off the frame, but that's no big deal if you add some to the bar.

Pretty slick - I'd probably be interested (depending on the price) especially if you could get them powdercoated or chrome...

Does anyone have plans for a roo bar, or do you know where I can find them on the net? I'm going to get a friend to build one for me.
