RO - What make are those bar end indicators and mirrors?

Jeez Phil, you're bringing a bazooka to a knife fight. Wow and good luck with your project.

Can't seem to find that style anywhere.

Just curious, what is there about these grips that you like? I always thought they were horrible. Blister raisers, like cheesey early BMX grips.

Like the CB though Robbie.

Mark,

Sorry, that is all I got for cafe racers, except for this one. This is my 1982 Magni MB2 with my buddy Doug Mo.

Well then I have this one, but this isn't that old though. This is my 2004 Triumph Thruxton. Now this is a fun bike!

Thanks, Phil

Those are Oberon billet aluminum units that I got here: http://www.bluestreakracing.ca/en/bl...ors/index.html

Don't look at the prices!

Skorpio, those grips are glove eaters for sure, but they are actually still pretty soft and pliable.
They weren't my first choice, but my wiring guru put them on to see how they looked with the turn signals on.
I think the end result is pretty good!

Now, if my exhaust would show up, I could finally ride the damn thing!

From the front..........

Thanks Robbie! They are steep, but I must say worth it for your bike, they look great! I don't know about the feel, but the grips look good on there too! Good luck with the exhaust!

You shouldn't limit yourself like that.

Phil
Saw a Magni Turbo in Michigan's UP in '87.

How many Magni Turbos could there be?

Wait a minute. The one I saw had Krauser heads.
