    I've been drooling over the fun stuff at motoveloci for years now. Sure their prices are high but: 1) it's Europe so high prices are to be expected 2) they sell what is today considered very specialized stuff so small volume, less economy of scale is to be expected and 3) European racers have deeper pockets than most USA racers and many racing club rules require certain period parts for eligibility and then certain parts are required to be competitive so it costs what it costs. We should be happy there's even an option, albeit pricey. I feel like long gone are the days where you can get this stuff used at a bargain price and in good enough shape to race on. Much better to get a modern aluminum replica drum brake than a questionable 40 year old Mg original.

    You're probably right , but they are there for the discerning builder. The backing plates alone for the Grimeca 230 are $500.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    You are right Marc, I no longer have a GT750 drum and haven't had one in years. My GT forks are disc setup. I only have my big grimeca 4ls.

    Yes but what if you knew someone that had a spare GT 4LS?

    Who mentioned that I have a complete GT550 4LS front end that I can't work out whether to fit it on a CB77 race bike or just sell it and make some quick cash.
