We bet you've never heard that sentence before! It all started with a visit to a local Wrexham factory where Suba picked up a piece of polyurethane elastomer which ended up being her favourite chew toy.

 

Kit 200 for the Honda FK2 was developed when we again worked in conjunction with leading Japanese Performance brand Tegiwa.

Matthew started at Polybush back in August 2017 and has designed around 40* bushes so far! 

We were excited to have again worked in conjunction with leading Japanese performance brand Tegiwa. This time the goal was a replacement part for the Honda DC5 exhaust mount that would offer style and recognition as well as longevity.
