When I bought my 66B it had a folding top. Can't remember which one. There are two styles of those. One has a scissor type affair right at you temple. In a side collision I think you're either dead, or would have serious brain injury. Anyway, you should be able to find a used frame pretty cheaply, as most people I know prefer a packaway. I'm one of those that reverted to the packaway.

Thanks Chris, I like my hardtop also but at 77 years old it is really difficult to put on. I am concidering selling it to fund the soft top. I just can not handle the hard to anylonger.

Your Search Fu is more powerful than mine, Master. Perhaps someday I, too, will know everything after I search it all.






In reply to # 3888224 by JohnyMc Then you should, as suggested do a search first to familiarize yourself with what is required rather than expect Moss to know everything about it.

Wouldn't that be prudent?

Ah what a tosser you be mustang2andahalf.
And a troll. Is it an american thing?

So a suggestion to search the archives to make the acquaintance of all things canopy thus assisting in making an informed decision makes me a know all? You're so sad.

I would rather learn to fish, thus enabling me to feed myself for life, than hope someone throws me a fish sometimes. But hey....that's just me. Enlightened.

But be warned......I'm an grumpy old fart. I take no shit from people too lazy to do a preliminary search of the forum.
Nor do I appreciate wasting time providing suggestions towards a solution to then have you ignore them because you have to do some investigative work, in favour of a possible solution from a friend of a friend of a friend who once upon a time was a gardener with a shifting spanner and a set of pliers and somehow fixed their glowing ignition lamp with a piece of surgical tape, speck of moon dust and a rusty razor blade.

You get my drift?

I have taught others to fish, shoot, and survive. I didn't just tell them to search for a how-to-fish on the internet. The answers are not all there.
