So what has this got to do with my Ambo I hear you all muttering to your computers, well I recently bought a set of pattern grips for the bike, but no sooner had I fitted them (see previous post) than a set of genuine La sportiva Granturismo NOS made in Italy Brevettatta grips came up for sale, and they cost me less than the pattern parts I bought before

I love hunting out NOS parts, I loved doing it for my Z1b, and I love doing it now for my Ambassador, a little OCD hell yes, but then maybe we all are
If they are comfortable, go for it. Sometimes NOS = rock-hard.
