Cheetah Hoses
Note: Click 'Technical Stuff' on the left to go back.

Sometime around 1999 I was having some hoses made for a Tiger and had intended on making an exact copy.  During the fabrication phase, I asked the fabricator if he could make the fuel pressure hose 3 inches shorter because the original one was too long.  I was so happy with the results that I set upon and trial-and-error goal of making all of the hoses fit better.  I also went to work on Cheetah hoses. Over the next several years, I settled on teflon hoses made by Herber Aircraft.
