If you're a machinist I'd be interested in talking to you about some decent bar risers....
Ya I do some machining. I mostly make Titanium wedding bands but I have all the equipment to make whatever I want. Funny you should bring up handle bar risers cause I was just about to order some from Touratech with the Magura bars. I laid my bike down tonight and the crappy BMW handle bars bent, which I didn't mind cause its a good excuse to finally get the risers and good bars. Anyway, it would be pretty easy to make some handlebar risers. Give me some feedback on what the risers need to be, like height, width, what bars to adapt to, what kind of material and anything you can think of. With a lot of input I can develope some sweet parts which I would love to do. I really would like to develope the ohlins fork setup... $2200 for the WP forks is absolutely insane, and I haven't seen any other company to rival them....

If you want to talk about it real time you can AIM me...
