Wicked Final test fit of the crashbars......

Hello people,
Its been a long while (sorry:blast) but we're at the final hurdle and will start a production run next week. We've been testing raw bars for a while(by a Purple Helmet no less!), but have a couple of sets to production tolerances and they fit bang-on. They've also been powdercoated and have the finalised fasteners, therefore I now know what they cost us and can tell you that they'll cost you 179.95 inc. VAT!
The only thing that will change from the photos you see below is that the crossbar brackets and mounting plates are to be cut down in size to follow the shape of the tubing. I'll post a full specification soon, all materials, fastenings and finish are TOP quality. The silver sumpguard in the pictures is a pre-production one, the production ones dont have the little strip between the two bolts on the front.
We can now export outside the EU without charging the VAT, so for you American folks i have a complete price including shipping at todays exchange rate. A black powdercoated sumpguard and a set of crashbars will be $550 delivered! A set of crashbars on there own will be $330 delivered(give or take a few of dollars). jug:
Anyway have a peek at the pictures below. I'll get the bars on the website for order early next week. Delivery will be within four weeks, unless theres a really large number of orders in which case i'll make sure everyone knows when theres will come.
There are incredibly strong.

Wonky - what price can you do for black powdercoated sumpguard and a set of crashbars delivered here to Australia??

My bike won't be delivered until after Christmas, but I want to have the goodies ready to go for when I take delivery. I can make this a firm order in an instant!

Just done a little calculation. Shipping will be 59.99 for both items, which is a bit dearer than to the states unfortunately. Total comes to $845.32 AUD delivered at todays exchange rate.

Im going to take all orders through the webshop once ive posted the bars up and have all the shipping calculations sorted.

Hope this helps.

Chris

Chris, it certainly does help. Roughly AUD50 more than the USA price - I can definitely live with that. I'll be doing it.

I'll keep watch on the website, and on here...

Cheers.

Answers to questions.......

Hi guys,

Im desperately trying to get the bars ready for shipment asap. If you're interested in buying a set please register on our website here


I promise the quickest way to get a set is to do this as i will email everyone immediately as i put them online. Just trying to get the incredibly complicated shipping rates programmed in and sort out variations in international taxes within our webshop. Please bear with us on this, im working 17+ hours a day to get these out so that the pricing is accurate, purchase easy and shipping rates as accurate, quick and cheap as we can possibly get for you.

Chris

Quality

I have to add that the bash plate from Adventure-Spec is awesome. It has great protection and a great look. If the bars are the same quality then I am going to be very happy and will be singing these guys' praises everywhere i ride.

Great work Chris and thanks for putting up with our over-anxiousness

Chris, I've just created an account on the website, indicating 'yes' to email, but it isn't obvious how to actually register interest for this particular product (or, more accurately, pair of products: sump guard and crash bars).

Is that all you needed from us?

Bars

Hello Chris,

Everything still going well with the bars? I feel for you the website must be a bit complicated!

Could we get a status? Gonna be out riding and don't want to miss anything

Chris,

Your stuff looks great. Please let us know when the bars are ready and we'll place an order for a complete outfit for the F800GS.

Thanks,
