    Ok guys. Got 25 braces welded up this weekend. Have a little more fabrication on them and then paint. I'll start taking orders now and should have them ready to ship out by the end of the week. I had to raise the cost of the braces by $5, the cost of my parts have went up considerably. The braces are now $60 plus $10 shipping in the cont USA. PM me if your interested in a brace.

    Thanks..

    I just got my brace delivered yesterday and it's B E A U T I F U L :clap

    I'm sure I could have hacked together something myself that would have been functional but without the proper tools and time it wouldn't have been anywhere near as slick as this. Now I just need to locate an Acerbis tank for my trip west next year :evil

    Thanks much Tom, great product! Why didn't I think to grab your twist-a-plate while you were shipping me the tank brace? :huh

    Got my brace quickly. I couldn't be more happy with the install. This is so much better than the crappy braces Acerbis supplies. Money well spent.

    I've had the brace on for about 1000 miles now and couldn't be happier! It actually pushes the tank up against the seat to give the bike more of a factory look.

    Thank you Hodakaguy for making such a quality product and continuing to support those of us who love these bikes!
