I have a bunch of top bow parts, and a complete set of bows for a roadster.
Can someone show me what the 25`s look like? or the length of each bow.
One set the cradles are low, the other is high.
One set the bow that connects to the windshield is shorter than the other.
If someone has a picture of a real 25 set, I sure would like to see it Thanks. Dan

Dan, I have two sets and discovered yesterday the front two bows on one set are for 26-27 roadster. I can take pictures and measurements for you tomorrow. Would you have any extra front bows?

Good, Thanks. No extra frt bows, there hard to find. If I have to I`ll try to lengthen the one I have.
All the bows I have are the square type. The set I just bought has steam bent wood in them. the other set without the frt bow are the type with strait bows with wood fillers on the ends.

Thanks Phil.
One more question. I`ve noticed that most pictures I`ve seen of 25`s, the rear sockets are strait. Mine are curved up at the ends. Why?

The curved ones are for 26-27 roadster.

Son of a !%&XX? F^&%, Damit!
Ive got lots of bow parts but nothing that resembles a 25.
The way it sounds I have a complete set of 26 roadster top bows that I`ll never use.
