Distel bottom straps replacement

Hey all

 

Bottoms straps are getting knackered now and want to replace.

Can’t seem to get hold of actual Distel straps and the Buckingham ones I just got from Honeys don’t seem all that good compared to the originals, and I think they’ll be going back.

 

Anyone replaced theirs? Any suggestions on alternatives?

 

Seems a bit mad to buy new just for some straps

Cheers

Just replaced mine a couple of weeks back. Got proper Distel ones from FR Jones. Need a big torx driver for the bolts.

Replaced mine a while ago, with ones from FR Jones. Main front strap was fine, calf strap fine too, but the small one around heel would not stay tight. I used a couple of new 25mm cam buckle cargo straps cut to length, drilled/heat sealed then fitted. Works a treat and much better.


Seems like I should check out fr jones!
