So now we're curious as to the note (cost) you wrote to get it here?

Yep - it'll go to use. Got a new neighbor this week and he's got a big ole tank of argon in the garage - sweet!

Shipping was 36 GBP so not cheap but spent.

here's some picts of the factory G/S guard-







Last pict shows the Twin headlight Earnie centerstand plate.IMHO way better than the others out there, due to the way it attaches plus the wrap around on the sides.

I drilled pilot holes then just used a hydraulic press to put in the dimples.

JRP's a professional machinist. I stayed with him for a while on a road trip once. He's got access to better toys than we do
