Got som time with the bike today. Did a test of the rearsets on the brake side. When i have the final measurements for both sides I will make some more parts on my friends cnc-router.
The arms that hold the linkage will be about an inch shorter and much slimmer in the final version.

Had a full days work on the bike today :) Tedious work, and I'll need another full day to finish these. Hope I'll get the time to take another full day off soon.

Today I got to finish one of the parts that I've really been looking forward to see finished. The Motogadget MIni embedded in the headlight. The result is not perfectly symmetrical, but close enaugh :)

Should I powdercoat the rearsets black or leave them as they are?
