    I can testify that Craig is a man of his word and the quality of the Ratel products. Got in on the very first case saver production run and also using the prototype chain guide bracket :thumb

    Yeah I know. When phuktbucket changed their Ts&Cs from free to paid.
    I am migrating to Dropbox as I have business account. But they are in the process of changing how things work as well. I should be able to sort it all out in the near future. It may be better to start a new thread.

    Offer is still open to host your photos on my iiNet (ftp) server permanently or temporarily, or help with a Google Drive hosting?

    Oh buddy, time to get some new bling. Mr. Aquatic, can you put me on the list for the following:
    1. Voltage regulator bracket
    2. Foot peg bracket
    3. Axle kit w/abs mount spacer
    4. Raising link
    I'd prefer black for the color pieces and I ride a 2012 Sertao.

    I'll pay up front for everything.
    Sending you an email with contact info and address now.

    Oh, and disregard the PM I sent you regarding the Fastway linkage guard. With your raising link, I'll be able to adapt an idea that negates the need (already bought some steel stock).

    I know the feeling.
    The bike has finally arrived at my place, so I'm ready to pay as soon as you are ready to take some $

    Got my order today. Terrific quality Craig. And I think the blue links will look much better than my original ninja-black-everything idea. More photos to come.

    Have fun putting it together.

    Can anyone pick the the error in the photo?
    In the far future it may end up as a limited edition faulty part worth millions to a collector. :jack

    Hint: brakes

    Declawed. Yes :-)

    You win a "well done"
    :clap:clap:clap:clap


    Not exactly sure what happened there. Even the Laser engraver said to me it is part of the toolpath but his machine just didn't cut it.
