Dude, that blows, in prime riding season! Hopefully it gets sorted before fall, I'd hate to miss riding in the fall.

Still seeking a rear 18" wheel off a challenge, or a rear hub I can lace a rim onto if anyone happens to know where one is...
































Like if someone happens to total theirs.

I just finished replacing this frame part on my XChallenge. It takes about 6 hours total to get the whole job done. The new part is ~$330. I broke the frame tab off and need to get it welded up.

Would anybody be interested in doing the Honda RC51 exhaust? Forget who did it to their challenge, but he got hold of some stock mufflers off a Honda rc51 and bent up a mid pipe. No cat in them, looks good, lighter than stock. I even have 2 mid pipes from the failed prototypes. I can get two cans off a guy, but only need one.

Pannier Racks

So a couple of weeks ago, I order H-P pannier rack for my '07, am told it could take 2-3 weeks. Talk to the guy today and am being told it could be another 4 weeks due to a hold up at H-P. Who knows when I may see them. Are there any H-P dealers that carry stock or will this be the story I hear from everyone? If so, any alternatives out there (and no, I don't feel it is necessary to buy a steel frame)

It took 3 MONTHS to get mine. Only to find out that any side bags that will fit the HP racks will BLOCK the gas cap. Call Chris at Eurotech Motorsports ASAP. Hurry!

I hope that the panniers won't block your gas cap!
