I'm trying to clone the bike (that's legal right?) I saw on

and the racks really make the bike something special (that and the S Fairing).



I've been watching this board for a long time and this is my first post. You guys rock!
Um, I'm not sure if this'll work, (first post) but - I had aluminum Krausers on my R90/6. It was not a happy union. The short version is that they were brittle, (a turn signal snapped off with hardly any provocation, G&!# it!) and those forward locating struts didn't fit well and are allegedly prone to fatigue cracking. I chopped it up and recycled it several years ago. Muy unhappy. But that was me. I have the steel tube mounts now, at least you can bend and weld those. That's my cent and a half. Sharp bike, I like the slotted rotors.
