    Red Cat, none of the clubs around here will allow steel, they are afraid of ricochets.

    jgrady1982, yes it leans forward 15° so that bullet and splatter is deflected downward. Should be at least 10°-15°

    Would you happen to have a build posted on this carrier? I've been collecting parts to do the exact same thing on my Class A and am wondering about any issues I'll have with the parrallel links. And the recievers attaching to the under carrage of the coach.

    If not a build could I bother you for some more pictures? Possibly in a PM? I've looked at my pile of parts for several years and someday I'm going to go ahead and start cutting out the parts. The wife retires next Summer and we're finally going to get time to get the old bus back on the road.

    How about a notch in the pipe that the target drops down in?

    The targets swing back and forth depending on who shot them. The slot would defeat this. The forward lean causes the bullet fragments to angle downward as well as cause the targets to want to stay in the forward position.

    Nice work Vertigo! Have used a lot of different tubing notchers making tubular chassis and doing general motorsports fab work and that looks like a really nice one. What's the story with that frame jig?

    Cool stuff Vert!! Someday I hope to have a Ti frame. Do you build road frames too?

    Never mind, I see on your website that you list road forks in some options. That means yes ;)

    I made this mounting system for a Summit Racing fuel cell to go on my K1100RS via a Touratech locking topcase plate.

    Note to self: no matter what, do NOT, I repeat DO NOT wash off or lose the markings between mated peices. :baldy

    I don't know for sure how many combinations there are for 8 holes on 5 parts where the x-axis on part A (short bar) has the pontential to be either North or South AND left of or right of the part B (long bar) AND part C (long bar).

    BUT I CAN tell you I think I found them all.


    It took me two hours to sort that nightmare out. :lol3


    What I lack in intelligence I make up for in persistance. :komet

    I put the stock can from my 950 on my Coleman to quite it down. I would say it cut the noise in half.
