looking good John!

Want to help me out with my spare Black Bomber frame? I would love to create some kind of custom mounted rearsets like you did there.

absolutely - I will be in the shop all day saturday hopefully. Your best bet is to get some late 80's early 90's pegs/sets from a supersport/superbike, and then we make up the tabs to bolt them on.

That vintage's controls are usually still steel, which makes it easier to fab up the control mounts/rods. For instance, to make my adjuster rod for the shifter, all I had to do was cut and section some .25 rod to get the right length. I think the whole process of mapping, cutting and mounting took like 2.5 hours. not bad.

Niiiiiiice, Gary.

Still... the thought of trying to grab a handful of brake after riding modern bikes with modern braking systems would cause me a 'moment'...

ya, the brakes can add a little excitement sometimes, that and the fact that the shifter is on the right side with a 1 up 3 down pattern. So you go to hit the rear brake and you up shift. It really only takes a few minutes though to get your mind working for the bike your on. I have 3 bikes, all have different shift patterns.
