    I thought that's what those were...

    Do you have a pic of the back fender attachment and taillight setup? I'm making a hoop for the back of my subframe, but not quite sure how to attach the fender to it.

    The nice nylon/plastic spacers came fom Lowes hardware bins; I sanded the angle of the fender into one face of the spacer for a tight fit. The fender dead ends about an inch from the battery which has an aluminum shield (bolted to the lower fender mount tabs) to protect it from debris.

    I have a bike with a swingarm/shaft and subframe made by Chris...the rest of the bike was built by a local guy (Santa Cruz), on Chris' original ideas...

    The bike probably started life as a R100RS that came standard with a rear disc.

    Like your bike eruzo.

    Interesting sub chamber on the front cross over. How does it make itself felt ?

    May I ask whose front brake rotors, front and rear fenders and rear shocks ? almost forgot, whose mufflers ?

    Ya, I didn't look closely enough, I mistook the rear wheel as wire spokes.
