A rear footpeg for a Triumph Scrambler (cheap cast ally crap) $120

Clutch cable for same $80

I can forgive a bit as it has a 20,000k service interval ('sept oil changes and usual consumerables chains, pads a wheel bearing $30, a fork seal $30 a speedo cable under warranty). It broke two spokes (about $15 each) now all race wired together. It is strong reliable mill with a gut full of oil - almost 60,000k so far and it is thrashed - it hits the rev limiter from time to time.

And the bicycle shop probably paid around $1.00 to $1.50 for it anyway. My bicycle days are over ten year ago, but I recall they were $0.55 back in 2001.

Yup,After my experiences with Guzzi & Aprilia bikes I'm guessing you can probably get something to fit from a auto shop for about $10-30,it just takes a little looking through their stock if they'll let you.
BTW,Guzzi Dealer quoted $81 but they dont stock them got a volvo one from Auto-one for $30
Didnt bother contacting Aprilia even though its the same as Ducati & should be common
just got a GMH/Ford/Nissan one from Supercrapauto for $13.
