Either looking for one, or exact dimensions so I can fabricate it eventually. That shouldn't be a big deal just by working on the bike's actual body and fitting. But why not have a head start.
For a ready one, price would have to justify shipping and re-chroming. I know they are also available in Germany, but looking for a better deal for now...

Building an engine from random parts. This will eventually morph into building a bike from random parts - if it ever happens. Need a frame to begin with.

Thank you. They might be out of stock as with other parts recently. In Germany it's 198 Euro plus shipping. That's a bit too much. Well, the bike will run without it, haha, eventually I'll find a good deal.

Stan there's a guy here in the UK who has made reproduction units, chromed steel.

I had one of his last ones earlier this year for my bike.

I contacted him a couple of days ago about your query and he's estimating cost at £110.00ea or £100.00 for 5 or more.
(GBP price, plus shipping)

He hasn't done any for a while and it may be a little time before he gets more done, but if you're not in a hurry he's happy for you to get in touch to discuss;
(maybe some other folks on here might want to batch-together?)

He does various other classic Kwak bits as well.

When I bought mine he asked me to confirm the model, as there's apparently a difference in length between the top shock mount and the rear rail mounting point (the bolt hole).

(As my frame came with all these brackets hacked off it didn't matter, I just re-fabricated to suit the rail he had!)

Hope it's of some help.

I maybe interested in one or two- the next thing is freight. Unless he is part of the world wide shipping programme, freight is often the deal breaker because of it's odd shape.
Anyway. I haven't had one on my bike either since I've owned it , and it still runs ok. Go figure eh!
