btw Warna I dive down around mornington most weekends so if you do need something done i can drop it off
excellent.. not looking for freebies obviously.. happy to pay for the service.. I've just been having trouble finding any waterjetters that will do one off's and/or very small job runs..

easy as mate, One off's small runs etc are no problem since it was agreeing to do those type of jobs that we ended up doing work for several high end clients (lotta work from the de-sal plant...)

let me know what you need and I'll sort it out

That is a fantastic attitude to have as long as you can fit it in with other things on your schedule.

Just updating, SR the bracket went this morning in a 500gm express post satchel so you should have it tomorrow. if it needs any mods (might do since i didn't have the parts here to measure draw up myself) let me know as i can modify the CAD file easily enough and I'll fit it in between other jobs.

good luck with it mate

Sorry..... so little time

All,

I know that you wanted to see these - but with my code working but the hardware not working life has become a bit hard.

I didn't get to buy the longer screws so.... you have to imagine it fully mounted but I tried to be the best hand model I could - I will get it mounted very soon and have the lamps installed as well.

But first what can I say; Maggot1300 did an amazing job and it fits perfectly.

It clears the inner edge of the forks and fender toolbag;





It easily clears the front of the forks;



It doesn't go back too far;



The angle works perfectly;



So all I need to do is buy bigger bolts, drill the lamp mount holes, loctite and mount the whole thing and it is done.

What can I say... Maggot1300 gives great metal and I am very grateful for his efforts!

Tony

Top job Maggs!

Maggs,

Are you interested in other small jobs (not freabies)?

If so, I have a need for 2 identical brackets to mount a fuel tank I've just ordered. Specs are at:

http://www.adventureguide.co.nz/arti...large-tank.php

and scroll to bottom of frame. I will also be fitting the tank to a DRZ250 as in the url.

If you're interested could you pm me.

Thanks,

BruceC
