it may help with alot of builds.....I have bought other bike rear sets,end up modifing them too. Use these ...dont use these just thought options are great when your building.I found this site as my next bike will be a hard tall suzuki 550Gs just because i want to build that look, take a break from my cx-tanked styled cafe bikes for one build.Going to get their uni hard tail kit.
My cx-tanked cb360 is about ready for ebay .After I take it to Thunder On the Bay Bike week this coming weekend in Sarasota Fl

i bought of sets form this guy. he lives in aus, when you buy a set he sends the order to the manufacturer in thailand and they ship them to you. i was a little disappointed that the set i bought had a lot of superficial scratches that required buffing. when i contacted him he said the last time he visited the factory he told them that if they would pay more attention to details he would be able to sell more, their response was "want american quality you pay american prices" and to take a leap.

I'm up in Jacksonville. do most of my wrenching on 2-strokes. RD's Kawi triples n such. I see a few familiar names on here from other 2-stroke boards. Geeto67 for one and I've seen Fang around!

These bikes always run best just before they blow up..

its easier to name a board Geeto isnt on .Its why he is the in house encyclopedia for bikes.That and his library,and that he just never sleeps without, one eye open, on anything bike related.

Hey Geeto did you ever finish that FZR/H1 bike you were building. I'm in the process of sometthing similar at the moment. FZ monoshock rear end. FZR (or maybe R1 if I can afford it) front end. Slow going though.

The project stalled when a crappy welder I hired to mount rearset brackets used electrical conduit to make the mounts. I still have her and she is buried in the back of the garage. Once I sell off a few bikes this spring she is going back on the lift.

I've got a few of those "buried" in the back of the shop myself. If you get the chance you shold really try and make the Deals Gap 2-stroke meet this May. It really is a blast.
