Fishing rod holder?
Roll bar?
Bull bar?
Snorkel?
Side step?
Or best of all - all of the above?

They look pretty heavy duty!

Maybe santa will bring you one of these so you can make a bullbar next:-

They actually look just right, almost like original fitment. Are they purely ornamental or do they have a function?

Maybe be doing some pipe bending, quite fancy a wee bullbar for the front. Something small, could do with a lashing point for the canoe.

Yes, 4 holes drilled in the sills, not weight bearing mind, just for show( anybody who needs a step to get into a Hijet needs to reconsider walking Wink )

I had those underneath my first Hijet, a 993cc. They fitted like a glove. No drilling necessary. This summer I will mount them om my Hijet 1.3. Only have to make a minor adjustment.
