I had this thought but how to machine the holes at the correct angle with enough meat left behind was my concern. Pilbara's part looks quite a bit bigger than what I built and in reality since I am using a crashed bike with a tweaked headlight/fairing mount this was a easier way. Also the bike is not going to be used for rally's as the others pictured in the thread obviously are.
If ignorance is bliss, why arenīt more people happy?????
