Shameless plug. We have new Rear Sets!

Hey gang!

We now have a new type of rear sets on the market made specifically for 70's airhead motorcycles.

We are putting the finishing touches on the early 70's 4 speed transmission selector. Those should be ready to ship in a week or two.

The foot pegs are available in a knurled or smooth finish.
And they ship with the custom frame spacers between the exhaust hanger bracket and the frame.

http://www.oshmo.com/product/bmw-rea...-transmission/












These rear sets are designed to fit where there is already a hole in the exhaust hanger bracket. Notice the spacer or boss designed to fit or 'key in' perfectly onto the uneven surface of the exhaust hanger bracket.

Nice looking stuff. How about doing some footrests that accept BMW footrest rubbers?

Very, very nice looking items!

Out of curiosity how long will this introductory price be on for...I need to get saving my pennies!

Huh. We never thought about that... maybe not the ugly big square rubbers but we can consider a pair that would accept the Denfeld round style rubber. It took so long to work out the tooling and machining of these that it might take a while to adapt a set with rubber. Maybe sometime in 2015.

This price will last for a few months.

We also sell with, or separately, frame spacers that you need for every set of rear sets. These go between the frame and the exhaust hanger bracket.

Beautiful stuff. Any hope of seeing parts for monoshock bikes?

The square rubbers and the round ones fit the same metal footrest.

Generally speaking about the many different types of rear sets that have been available for our bikes: Most all of them have not been made for the long hall. Usually for their design but over all the setups have been pretty junky. Sure, they look good new. 40,000 miles later? Most of them are wobbling F'ed up pieces of crap IF they still work at all. I would be interested in a pair IF someone made them out of thin wall steel tubing reminiscent of the foot pegs on BMW serious factory race efforts. I am talking about way back when they were competing for the Euro and World Championships. I bet I could make a stronger and lighter set of pegs out of .068 or so steel tubing AND they would look vintage trick. Not almost modern. The levers AND the pegs per a RS54 and the like. Those large diameter thin wall pegs WITH rubber on top look real cool if you appreciate the high performance looks of the fifties. I know I do. My bike will never be a hot new bike. A hot old bike it is and should look!!! Put another way: I am not trying to turn my bike into a BMW S1000RR. I can literally go by one of those. My project is more like a RS54 in spirit.

What would I do without all of your personal advise Renner? You must have committed a hundred posts to the cause? What a class act to emulate. I bet you are glad that I don't.

anyway, probably I couldn't care.

I mean to say, "why don't you set a good example by demonstration."
Plenty of creative folks here would appreciate actually seeing your work.

Any fool on the 'net can claim whatever they please.
