Anyone in the UK got a set of battered and beaten aftermarket oval end ends they don't want?

I have a set of oval carbon cans and the end plates, the ones that bolt up to the pipes with 4 bolts, are totally shagged so I am looking for a "near freebee" to try and muck about with them to see if I can cut them down and make a semi decent pair of cans.

To buy a new set of end plates is not worth the effort as I might totally f**k it up or even hate them when finished.

Most of the ovals I have see appear to be of a similar size so it does not really matter from where they come as long as the end plates, fixing bolts and retaining straps are in a useable condition.

Mmmmmmm Arrow carbon ovals.....very nice bits of kit. Not helped that they're not made/sold any more!!

Mine did split around the base plate fixings and were replaced under warranty by B and C Express. (Talking summer 2000 though)

I'd be tempted to ring around breakers and try to find some scrapped gsxr end cans. I reckon its a generic 4 bolt Suzuki fitting.

Just found this firm via google:
