    Still interested but guess I'm not to sharp on the PayPal thing so I need a better link where I can use credit card for deposit.

    I'm very interested and ready to put deposit. 2 questions:

    I see you have attempted to keep the accessory/luggage sockets. I have the Hepco racks; how confident are you that you are within specs of the OEM sockets?

    I intend to get the Corbin low saddle (ordered already, not made yet). How much have you changed the available volume in side the rack? In particular, I'm thinking about the screws that hold the plastic strips in place.

    We're setting up a post office box for money orders and checks. We're not set up for credit cards - maybe someday!

    I've done many PayPal links that accept credit/debit cards for rallys and parts that don't require buyer to have a PayPal account. That's what I was talking about and what you might consider looking into as it could simplify the process for more than just me. I could be wrong or the only odd one though.

    Good idea. We'll run the test this weekend and post the results.

    I used PayPal, but I have my credit card set up in PayPal. It is very easy to do.

    i really want you to get to 20 deposits so:

    quote from Pay-pal:
    You don't need necessarily have to create a PayPal account to pay someone viaPayPal. You can do so with your credit card. Ask your friend to create a PayPal link or button and place it on their website. Visit the link and use your credit card to pay them.
    You can send potential buyers a link and they can pay with their c.c.!

    I hope that helps because i think there's way more than 20 pledges throughout the thread!

    cheers, MK.

    The ATO pockets have the same depth, opening width and length, and are in the same location as the OEM pockets. The OEM pockets taper a little toward the bottom, probably to help remove the plastic rack from the mold. We did not duplicate the taper. We don't have a set of Hepco-Becker racks to test but we’re confident they’ll match up. If the Hepco inserts are tapered, we'd suggest placing a small piece of rubber sheet into the pocket to take up the extra space.

    The inside volume of stainless steel ATO rack is a bit larger than the OEM – the plastic OEM rack is considerably thicker. The tiny 4 mm screws and nuts that hold the strips in place should not interfere with an aftermarket seat.

    PayPal does offer credit card processing for payment but we'd need a dedicated website to offer that service. Since we're initially offering the rack for sale via ADVRider, our PayPal options are limited - the buyer needs a PayPal account. Someday, if all goes as planned, we'll have a dedicated web site - for now our options are limited. Hopefully you understand! Sending a money order or check to the post office box will be available in a day or so - maybe that option can work for you. thanks.

    My money is sent.
    The video with the mosko soft panniers and the removal of the passenger grab bars, tipped me over the edge.....
    Another forum member/purchaser, asked about black powder coating.......
    Is that an option that I can pay extra for?????
    Thanks again guys for putting this out there for us.

    Good point! Shipping cost to Singapore? We'll be getting at least 2 sets. That count may increase. Waiting for confirmation on the final count.

    Money sent.
    I also requested a black powder coat if you can. Gloss or satin or that krinkle type.
    Looking forward to it.
    I think this with the Mosko Reckless 80 is going to be a great off road gig Than I can run the cheepo Honda for road work.

    Thanks byknphill and C.J.! Unfortunately we are not offering powder coating services - you'll need to get it powdered coated locally!

    And to those who requested pricing of overseas shipments - we're looking into it!
