    I am looking for a driver quality rear bumper for my 70 GS. I live in the Washington DC area.
    Thanks, Tom

    Got a couple, but shipping is problematic. I can take them to a pack and ship, but they tend to be expensive.

    The way I always ship them is 1) I go get a cheep blanket from somewhere like good will 2) I shrink wrap it around the bumper 3) I take it to FedEx and ship it just like that. I find the cost is a lot less and far less of a pain like trying to box one up. Fred if you have a really good 70 core I would be interested. Need not be good chrome as I will have it redone. PM me a price on a solid core.

    This is what the one I shipped out last looked like. I have shipped bumpers all over the place with FedEx like this for years and never had a problem. I have even once sent fiberglass bumpers out this way but I wouldn't recommend it. They made it safely to the destination but I was very worried they wouldn't.

    Well I do have one,I would not call it driver quality,it has rust on both left and right side,but its very straight and would fit good,The rust could be taken out and filled with whatever and painted with chrome paint.Why I saved it?Its very straight,but as it aged it got worse. Nobody seems to have any,this is why I'm putting it here in case you really need it.Bruno.
