I think the blue pipes come standard with most sportsters

Earache my eye...
Stroker: let me know how you like "The Strange Death...." I saw that in Motorcycle Classics magazine and thought about picking it up.
But Shhhhh don't tell me the ending. ;)

Hoosier - I wouldn't spoil the ending for you!

After you have read "The Strange Death ...." you will never need to read anything else on this period of history. Even though the historian writer is a long term owner and rider of a Norton he has no illusions about the failings of the British bike industry an has produced an unbiased, detailed analysis of the events.

And no, it wasn't the butler!

Bit of a spending spree recently. All for the bike in one way or another

Boots

1080p cheapie camera, takes pretty nice video for the price when running in 60fps and 720p

P1040547_400.JPG


Temp gauge for the CX, tried to match the acewell as much as possible so went digital and blue

$(KGrHqNHJB8E7y)zCyGiBPEhBO2G5!~~60_35.JPG


And a few more bits and pieces. Like an optional mount for the camera above and a selection of button head bolts to tidy up the triple tree and mounts etc.

Cheers
Steve
