Got a dirt works monster of ebay ages ago and the yellow nylon bushes were worn , just wondering if anybody has these lying aroung , BETD will make me some but for £75.00?
I thinks is very expensive , can this be converted into cartridge bearings?

i can take pics if needed

I'm not familiar with the particular bike but would be happy to offer an opinion if you post some pics.

Generally such a thing isn't going to work as the original design accommodates 2 or 3mm of bushing material. That wouldn't give enough housing to bore it out to take a rolling element bearing.

pics would be good.

take a look a simply bearings webiste - tyhey do bearings as well as bushes - maybe somthing on there that you can use; or modify frame to take more common bearing/bush.
