Cabbie... I think your a great bloke, i admire your workmanship and your attention to detail is superb but, sometimes your colour co-ordination is like a black man at a KKK gathering...Just wrong! Laughing

Had a delivery turn up today that i'd almost forgot about... I purchased these on the 24th of November and they've only just turned up, yet another Hong Kong special, Titax copies but under half the price @ 48!Obviously not that pleased about the amount of time they took to come but i'm quite impressed with the quality, i don't know how good they are in comparison to real Titax levers but they look good, proof will be in the fitting though but if this weather persists they won't get fitted till spring!

Also had a set of those black bungs turn up from the States to plug the swinging arm bolt and engine mount holes on the frame, bit ott with the price @ 20 but should make the frame look nice once fitted.

Seeing as the sun was out today i took the opportunity to put those gold levers on that have been sitting on the kitchen shelf for weeks, really pleased with the look but really surprised with just how small they are! It's probably hard to tell by looking at the pictures but they are tiny, quite literally a two fingered lever! They feel good and i normally ride using 2 or 3 fingers anyway but i'll see how i get on once i take it out for an hour or so, i can't really moan, they were under 50.

Looks great from here Vince and the price is even better.
The smaller lever will take a few days to get used to, tucked away further up the clip on reduces the risk of accidental damage.

As you know i've been in contact with them in the states and once i've got a couple of quid in the bank i'm gonna get another undertail in red, buying a new one from the US will work out about the same as getting my undertail preped & colour matched here in UK! screwy fookin madness??

Strange you should mention that goldie, that was the only thing i was disappointed with, i asked if the could do me gold levers with red adjusters but they said they only do red adjusters on silver or black levers screwy
Oh well, it may have been a blessing in disguise Smile

Had a visit from Santa today, well actually it was Gumsey... We both ordered some rear sets from a company in Australia and he kindly dropped them off at my shop today. I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with them, they are much better than i was expecting and because we bought 2 sets we got a nice discount... Result! Cheers Gumsey thumbup

Well it has me a little baffled but i'm not complaining... The origional price for them was 195 plus 19.99 p&p, then there was a catalogue of errors on behalf of the machinists that the company use (i won't go into it, it's a long story), anyway, in answer to your question we ended up getting them for 151.50 a pair, a proper bargain sir Smile

Gumsey is the man that sorted this whole deal so big thanks to him respect

I took half day off work today seeing as they forecast good weather and spent the afternoon in the garden in the sun fitting my rear sets, once i get a nice little billet master cylinder and i decent hose on the back it should improve the look and tidy it up a bit, i'm happy with them tho Smile

I just want to say this is all Cabbies fault, if i didn't meet up with him through this forum i'd still be quite happily riding about on my old RRW and loving it.
Now i'm in dept up to me eyeballs, have constant running battles with the Mrs about buying new bits, working me nuts off and my kids are getting skinny but most importantly... my Blade looks good Laughing
