Roll bars weren't standard on Australian Mokes until much later than 1974, so they aren't very common. Many that you see around are 'home' made to varying standards.

The late model ones won't fit a Moke with a top-fill fuel tank, so if you find one online make sure that it will fit. The really late ones to fit Portugues Mokes are different again and won't fit with an early style soft-top.

A further complication is that they can be really expensiveto ship, as most shippers will charge 'cubic' on them so although they aren't very heavy they calculate a cubic weight from their dimensions, and that can get expensive really fast.

I think what I'm saying is that unless you get lucky, you may need to design your own and have it made for you somewhere nearby.

Hi Tim,
That’s great information thank you.
As you said sounds the best plan to get on made locally.
Thanks again.
