Need u-joint

For sale, wanted and promotions

I am looking for a u-joint for a Vintage windsurfer. It's a Vinta Solo and the u-joint is a rubber hourglass looking thing with "Swede Joint" stamped on it.

Ideas where I can source one, new or used?Image

I suggest posting on the Old School Windsurfers Facebook page. Someone there is more likely to know.

I would try to retro-fit a brand new joint.

Definitely retrofit. I'd recommend the mechanical, it will put less stress on the board.
