Bus Tie Bar / Clip

I'm looking for a couple of tie bars. They are the type that were sold by the Bus and Coach Society in the 1980's and '90's Gold in colour with black highlights. I'm looking for a Denning DenAir and a Denning Landseer. They look similar to this picture (only they are Dennings) 2014-09-11 11.01.47.jp...

Re: SSAT - Buses R Us then and now

Yes, sort of... The Austral is still in George Town, but the Toyota and the MotorCoach have gone to Ulverstone.
We have a Nissan Civilian from Ulverstone here in George Town and we had a MAN 18.370 here for a short while.

Re: Denning Landseer auto gearbox reliability?

It's probably an Allison Auto... they are also made by Detroit, so parts and spares would not be a problem.
And it would match up with the Detroit motor perfectly.

Also the Denning Landseer in my Avitar is for sale if you are interested... GREAT condition and low Kms.

Re: 245 has been Bastardised

This makes me angry!
Steerable tags were introduced to help reduce the problem of stripping tag tires when turning and to help with maneuverability. What moron wants to put us back 20 years?
