    Posted: 10 Sep. 2012 at 10:27am
The gentleman that actually made the bows for Norm posted on the 2A Page as having some extra bows on hand so I contacted him about possibly producing more. Because of the time and effort involved he is not interested in selling lots of 3. Sale Pending on the remaining bows he has. 
 
I do not know a price yet as he was only bending the bows so the metal work would still need to procured and shaped as well as purchasing the hardware. When Norm sold them a set of 3 bows (with the metal slats to fit in the stake pockets as seen below) was around $270-$300 plus shipping from NY to your address.
 
I have an original set of brackets and the stake pockets so at least I have the correct patterns to do this. I also have an original set of Bows and the Side Racks so  this leaves another option.
 
How many people would be interested in getting bows for their Bantam T3-C Trailers produced?

Art,
If I'd not already received a set from Norm, I'd be asking.  Don't know what batch these came from (saw an image on his post but can't find it now in the Sale section) - so the price may have increased.  I paid a little bit less back in '02.

Yes, I found the man that originally made the raw bows for Norm and was polling for interest.

It has been over 4 months since I posted here that I could make the bows as before. The moderator was going to coordinate the delivery of said bows, but I have not heard from him.  Anyone interested in a set of bows for the Bantam trailer should contact me directly and I will make the bows.  For now, I will plan on 15 sets of three bows, based on what I have seen so far. Shipping will be a bit pricey, since UPS charges by volume (in this case) not by weight. First come, first served...

I've only heard from a few individuals on this as you can see in the previous posts above yours.
 
Sorry for not contacting you sooner but I just have not seen the (volume) interest yet...most likley because of the current economy but I have not forgotten about you.

Hey there. My name is Sean and I just purchased a 1946 Bantam that I am restoring.

I would be very interested in a set of the bows.

Frank, how do I get in contact with you to find out the price and talk about the order?
