Silicone hose set

In response to an email I sent to Samco yesterday.....

"Hi, This is a kit we would consider bringing onto production but we do not yet have it available.

If we had demand for say 10 + kits and a donor set of hoses we could definitely do something. If you were able to donate the original hoses as templates for the factory to keep and be the one to help generate theinterest through means of a forum or owners club we could supply your set foc in exchange for efforts. The tooling cost is quite high so we need tohave this minimum order to justify the start up costs. If you can initiate we can of course handle all the customers names and payments etc. We would need the pre-orders and interest 1st though to validate the tooling costs.It will take around 6 weeks for 1st off production, we would not have a price until we had a set of hoses but always a fair price just depends onhow many hoses and complexity. Let me know and look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards Richard "

I willing to sacrifice my ride for 6 weeks of R&D if 10 people are interested.

Also, Motor Hoses emailed me back but said they were at a show in Daytona and would let me know if they are interested once they return home. I will let you know what they say.

So, anyone interested in some high quality virtually indestructible silicone silicone hoses. They come in many colors....mine will be red :-P
