The closest you will get will be 101.6, but id be going with 12.5 wall at least id even recommend going for the 16.5mm wall. When you see them you'll agree

your best bet would be solid bar, for all the weight your saving..... or if you are really weight critical turn the 101.6 16.5mm wall down to 100m o.d

Just my thoughts, hope it helps

Aiden
what tube are you quoting with 101 x 16.5 Aiden ... can't see it in any of me books ??

It is out there as engineering tubes, but it's finding it ....
I do tend to agree with your min. on a 12mm wall though, other than the fact that Gra isn't really working this hard at all

Thick wall tubes have always been a total PITA to source

I think you are probably right, about staying with solid bar, although may be interested in the 101.6 16.5mm wall if you have some spare.
As these heads get regularly changed less weight makes them easier to handle. The genuine one at 280kg is so unwieldy that we had to use the machine to line the bolt holes up. My others a about 70kg can easily be manhandled that last mm and if something does go wrong I don't think even steel toe caps will be any good if 280kg fell on them. It also makes the centre of gravity a lot higher which isn't good on the trailer.

Thanks for coming back to me, but Paul (Mogman) has made me a couple of cradles with 100kg saving per bracket.
