Burro Door Hinges?

Does anyone know what the proper hinges for a 78 Burro 13 are? Can I still buy them?
I emailed Burro about it around 3 weeks ago & of course, got no reply.
Can someone post a pic of them?
My Burro has a lovely set of flimsy, rusty gate hinges on it now.

Hello Rush,

As Burro 2 has a set of gate hinges I just ordered a new set today $44 dollars from the original manufacturer Polar Hardware, I will put these on the "red ass" and the old ones which were ok but looked a little old on the new paint, will go to Burro2, probably.
The originals are Polar 401's they have been replaced by Polar 411's which are 304 stainless steel, I prefer 316 ss but 304 should be fine in this application. Make sure you specify that you want a 0 degree offset.

Anyway here is the website: Polished Stainless Steel Hinges on Polar Hardware Mfg., Co.

Here are a couple pics of the old and new burro hinges, the originals were Polar Manufacturing #401 Chrome plate, the new ones are #411 Stainless Steel according to the Polar guy other than a bit of difference in shape old ones were a bit more rounded edge.
