Where are you getting these????

eBay mang... just punch in Redkap lot. The jackets and shirts are blems but really are unused with patches removed and I found a small fabric defect on one of the jackets but you really have to look hard to find it.

About $100 bucks for all so average $10ea. Working on 4 pairs of grey fire resistant shop pants now and I'll be set  :o

I always wanted one of these but I remember them being green and having a front fork that you could adjust the trail on, am I thinking of a different year or do I have the models confused.

I just found this, which explains it all and you might find interesting.

Yup, that was my plan. I got, um, ah... derailed.  ::)   I was building a street racer much like the road racer outlined in that article. It would make a sweet street machine.  :D

Too many 'irons in the fire' caused me to bail on that one. I'm sticking to one project at a time now.   ;)  :D

I think you otta get after that Big Horn tho C and C!  8)

I like the heads on those bolts.  BMW uses a non-Ti version on their output shaft.

Got em for the KZ1R front end, really only double what a hardware would sell a steel cap bolt for and less than Suzuki wants for fresh new bolts @ 3.40ea.

Hey Tuna, what vendor did you get these nice bolts from?
