New Hard Line Kit from Top Shelf Customs

Hey there, just wanted to let eveyone know about our new oil line kit. One of the keys to making your project stand out in a croud of custom bikes is to clean up your oiling system plumbing. And, the best way to do that is hard lines. If you have the right supplies, it can be really easy.
This kit incudes all the hardware need to get the job done. The line is annealed, seamless 3/8" stainless steel with the correct wall thickness for easy, strong bends. The fitteings are also stainless steel and come to you per-polished. The fitting are the two-ferrule type that don't require the use of a flaring tool. The best available for leak-tight connections

Barry,
They're working out fine. Using the copper line as a test line is definately the hot ticket.
Thanks again,
Mark

They look very nice and clean however I would be scared to use them.. I had steel oil lines before and could not get them to stop leaking..

Probably cheaper stuff than this but the vibration killed the rubber seals after a week..

I do like it though.

Luckydevil,
Thanks. I picked a tubing bender from Home Depot and had a little Gun Show. The stainless is more difficult then the copper mock ups i did. but i believe it is worth the effort. The gauge is some serious stuff.
Silverhorse,
The line system has a stainless steel ferrol and lock washer in it. Only time will tell. In speaking with Barry and his mechanic they told me to seat it and proceed 1.5 turns more and not to over tighten them. They have been using them for awhile with good results. They felt good so I feel good.

shouldn't have any leak issues

The fittings pictured are from swagelok. They are IMHO the best fitings available for SS hardline. They are industrial fittings rated to 10,000 PSI. Your oil pressure WILL NOT be an issue. They are used in factories, off-shore drilling rigs, laboratory environments, etc. I have used Swagelok fittings for three projects so far and have not had a single leak. The fittings aren't cheap. I don't know how much the poster above is charging for his "kit" but the fittings alone can cost $10.00-15.00/ea (depending on str8, 90, 45, etc...) and that is for un-polished 316 SS. Then he takes the time to disassemble each fitting and polish it up... So don't balk when you see the price (it may SEEM high)

I have also used swagelock in many applications. Usually when using pure inert gases. They are top of the line. They also have a tightening gauge just for swagelock fittings. These fittings are similar to compression fittings but they use a 2 piece ferrel. In our applications we always used the gauge for proper tightening and never an issue.

Mark, that really looks great. I'll have the other two fittings back from the polisher some time this evening. I'll call you when I have them in hand.
And, Pete you're right on with the quality and integrity of these fittings. They are the best available and along with the stainless steel .035 wall line
they are super strong. The price of this kit is very reasonable too, in line with a braided steel set of the same quality. They really look nice too.
thanks again for looking.

Barry
