    A couple of years ago, I bought a couple of cheap Acerbis copy manual roadbook holders off an Australian site.
    Can anyone remember who was selling them or where I can still get them?
    I gave a couple away cos they were crappy, but I've just worked out how to modify them to make them into a reasonable thing, so I'd like to get a couple more.
    Thanks in advance. :thumb

    I bought mine just before Condo in 2014 from Torpedo 7. They were only about $20 but they stopped selling them not long after.
    Ballards/MXStore have them for $70. They are in their latest printed catalogue but I cant see them listed on their website (cat #29-105, Large Roll Chart Holder).

    I thought Vince Strang also had them

    Torpedo 7! That was it!
    I've been trawling the internet for hours and couldn't find them.
    At least I know that's who had them now.
    Thanks heaps for that. :thumb

    I had an Acerbis unit a few years back and yes, it really was crap. In Ballard's catalogue they have listed a 'Large Roll Chart Holder' for $79.00,
    part No. #78-roll. Might be what you're looking for.
