That's outlandish.
Over $400.00????
C'mon all you out of work fabricators, someone step up and build something that the average guy can afford.

OK, I've gotta ask...why????? Why not just use a R100GS setup??? What's the benefit for using a 1150 setup? Doesn't seem like a good choice unless you just have money burning a hole in your pocket. Disc brakes on the1150, but someone here has done a disc brake conversion to a R100GS.
