Badge Bars

Badge Bars

I would like to find a chrome badge bar for my XK140. I have looked in
several catalogs, but can't seem to find anything. I have seen this item on
many old photos of jags sporting various badges of clubs or competitions.
Any help would be appreciated. - Ron Kutrieb

Guy Broad has them and there is a specialist chromework dealer that
advertises them in the JEC magazine. WIll post more details when I can
remember to bring the mag into work. - Dick Clements, 1951 MkV 3.5L Saloon

Ron, I recently purchased one for my MK2 Jaguar from a company called
Quality Components for approx UK £30. They also sell the clips and also
period badges for the bar.They have an illustrated catalogue. Sorry no web
site - tel / fax number is UK 015395 52087. I am the web site manager for
Guy Broad Jaguar. You may also want to ask Guy if he can help

Cost of the catalogue in the UK is 3 Pounds Sterling. Might be more if it
is to be posted overseas. - Dick Clements, '51 Mk V 3.5L Saloon

I am also looking for one and if I knew what it looked like I am sure I
could make it. Does anyone know if a badge bar was an optional accessory ?

Ron, I am looking for the same item. If you find a source would you let me
know also, please. Thanks - Klaus Nielsen

Klaus; I have a mailing from XK's Unlimited from a year or so ago, they
list a 18" bar #17-2105 $99.95, and a 22" bar with slight bend #17-2103
$1109.95. - Regards, Skip Smith

Boy Skip. When XK's makes that bar a little longer and bends it, it really
drives the price up. :-) - George Badger

That 22 incher must be impressive at that price- $1109. What did they do?
Get Superman to bend it for them by hand? - Carl Hanson

George, The extra $1000 is a result of my research and typing. A small
price to pay for four more inches and a slight bend I must say. - Skip Smith

Skip, Thanks, I'll try them for the short one. Those last four inches are
expensive. - Regards, Klaus Nielsen
