Leaper question

Postby Stefi 888 » Fri May 01, 2020 9:44 pm

Hello everyone,

i have recently bought a leaper off ebay which i thought was an Arden leaper that would be a spare as i have one on my bonnet (when i'm driving that is, as it is detachable)

once it had arrived, i realised it does not fit my Arden base, it is longer and wider than a standard Arden base,
On a German forum i found discussion about this leaper but i couldn't understand fully, as i know basic german and google translate was not of much help, could anyone tell me is this a genuine Arden leaper and if so, does anyone have a base for it they would be willing to sell me or alternatively if anyone on here works at Arden could i possibly purchase a base for this type of leaper as i have not seen them available on the site?

Here is the picture of the leaper in question (it is identical to the one pictured here)


and here is the ebay listing for the one i bought ( has the arden AJ circle on its belly)

Here is the link to the forum discussion about "a cheaper alternative and discussing Arden leapers"

Any information on this leaper would be very helpful!

thanks in advance,
