Thank you! When time comes, but 10 pounds is not a huge difference, and shipping would be separate too... so not big savings there in the big scheme of things.

For me, the grab bar is not just for visuals, passenger or the rear plastic protection, be it as superficial as you think it is.
Traveling alone, it would be very handy to have it to strap a bag to it.

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.

No worries Stan, your question just reminded me of what I'd bought so thought I'd throw it out there.

Certainly agree with you guys re the shipping, I guess would be best if you could get a batch together, ship to one of you in a country / state that's cheapest from europe, then redistribute from there at whatever is the best internal shipping rate.

Nice work Daro!

Is that stainless, or did you have it chromed after?

Stainless steel pipe. Got the pipe bender at home so i thought why not to do it my self. The biggest problem was, the brackets under the seat, basically to get them to fit properly because there is very little space to deal with.
