Default Club Cobra Badge Holders

One of the members in the Great Northwest has designed a badge holder specifically for the Club Cobra badges. He needs feedback to determine if they will fit universally. Please check these dimensions against your car and report back on the findings. The dimensions you need to check are the .75 diameter (the diameter of the tube around the bolts that hold the bump, overriders. quick jacks), and the overall height of the center to center measurement between the upper and lower tubes. If you check those, please post your findings here.

Just FYI I don't need a badge bracket (see my post on the "other" thread).

I checked mine out of curiosity and found that the O.D. of my tubes is 3/4", same as the drawing.

The vertical distance between the tube centerlines is 2-1/4" which is 1/2" closer together than the drawing. Mine's an E-M from ~2000, so YMMV...

I'd suggest making the clamp dimension slightly more than 3/4" to make room for a thin band of urethane (or suitable wrap-around elastomer shim) to prevent metal-to-metal contact.

Wells's law of engine size: If it matters what gear you're in, the engine's too small!

Thanks much Dan, for starting this post, one less thing I have do today. I believe the 3.50" center to center, is for mine and one other member's car up here. Classic Roadster's have that 3.50" and 1.25 dia. tubes, of course I have to be odd man out So Skip will be making that size as well. These will finished in brushed alum. but can easily be polished for those that like that look (Me). Any other question's like price will be addressed shortly, after he does the first run, which will be done (Fingers crossed) by this weekend. Please contact myself, or Dan. Cheers Tom.

My EM car has 3/4" OD tubes and 2-1/4" tube centerlines, as per Tom Wells' EM noted above. I second Tom Wells' sentiment about designing to accomodate an appropriate soft shim (or surface) to prevent metal to metal contact.

Thanks, Brent

My Kirkham has the 3/4" tubes and 2 1/4" centerlines while the CR has 1 1/4"
tubes with 3 1/2" spacing, same as Alfa02. I'd be interested in one of each, if

the kellisons are .75 tube on 5.062 center lines, i think making a bracket and marketing it will be a losing proposition, too many variables.
