North Five Line Replacement Options?

Postby William Munney » Sun Nov 17, 2013 3:50 pm

North's prices for replacement lines make buying a new bar a better option. I want to replace my steering lines and the front lines from the ring at the V. 2011 bar. Has anybody found a reasonable source?

Thanks

Here is a photo of my North bar (using 2 different colors for front and steering lines).

Thanks Caesar,

That may be the best way, but I'd like to avoid the knots if possible.

"using 2 different colors for front and steering lines"

This is really important after being on the piss all night. Next day he needs "2 different colors" to ensure safety.

More important to Aussies than Brassis amigo! But these days I would say they drink equally the same. :lol:
