    New Fork Brace

    Just got my new fork brace in from RSW Racing (http://www.rswracing.com/). It is super clean/simple, well made, and looks awesome. And it was extremely reasonably priced.







    And here are a few more pics of the bike. You can see the Ghosted Yamaha racing stripes on the side of the seat/tank better in these pics than the first pics I posted (These are the photos I posted originally on an intro thread with several more detail shots added to the mix).

    I\'d rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

    Can’t you find a better place to secure that cable tie strapped to the fork?

    brace looks kinda thin at the bridge part, could just be the photos though. From this angle it looks like the brace is touching the tire.

    I hate ghost anything but the yamaha racing stripes are a nice touch. The giant tuning fork logo on the top of the tank is a little gaudy to me.

    It is a good price.
    I machined one from billet for CB360, probably cost me closer to $250.00
    I made it in 5 pieces so it could be fitted easily and adjusted slightly if needed (Don't have CNC so had to do it all by hand)

    [u]Finished</u>

    MkI and MKIII, you have to remove forks from yokes to fit MKI
    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me

    Yours looks great. Nice job. You paid more, but you get the whole "I made this myself" pride side of it, and there is a lot to say about that.
