Marathon shafts

I am trying to find mini sized marathon shafts for my easy entry cart but I cannot seem to find any. Does anybody know where I can get them?

Thanks in advance!

You can post on the "Carriage Driving Classifieds" on Facebook and see if anyone there has a used pair or if they know where to get any.

The only place I can think of is to have them made by a marathon vehicle manufacturer, like Frey carriage Works in WI.

Is there even such a thing for a 2 wheel cart? I am thinking they are only for 4 wheelers that do not have weight on the shafts.

They do also have them for two wheel carts. If I remember correctly, Churumbeque, you briefly considered getting them on the new cart you just bought?

shafts

I also thought thay were on 4 wheelers only as well.
Come to think of it on new marathon veicheals I supose thay do, Come to mention it given some thought on the subject.
I think its an idear to get hold of a manafacturer and get some spesifacations to confurm as for a four wheeler and a two wheeler.
