The piece that holds the axle and the radial mount Tokico brake caliper were custom designed and made by my son. Same with the triple trees. Fork tubes are GSXR (I think).

That is simply awesome. Any idea of the cost of making another set?

He made these back in 2003. I don't know if he still has the program, tooling,and fixtures to make more. I'll ask him when I see him and I'll let you know.

I hope it’s ok to post this here. This is my ‘91 1200 xlh I’ve been working on for a while now. My first attempt at completely customizing a bike.



Engine needed to be rebuild, as it was leaking between the crank case, which was the first time I’ve split cases. While the engine was out I decided to completely restyle the bike. Waiting on a bassani road rage in stainless I just ordered, and I still have quite a few little things to check off my list, but hoping to ride this year.

Here is what it looked like before I started..
