    I've finally found a matching bit or two.... NOT!

    Close, but not quite. I buy from overseas eBay sites all the time and when the payments go through eBay they automatically pay the import fees and taxes upfront to the Australian Govt.. If a foreign seller deliberately lists in Aussie dollars on Aussie eBay for any item they increase price by...

    Yep, I've pulled springs out of watches and clocks heaps of times and the hands still go round .... you just have to turn the knob .........and you can go back or forwards in time too! Therefore I agree with you @cootertwo , springs are real downers ..... they are just the restrictors of...

    I've finally found a matching bit or two.... NOT!

    Bastards at eBay Global Shipping found out it cost more than they had listed. So they DO NOT EVEN send item back to seller and refund everyone, just me. The tins look like being trashed or flogged off by the shipping company! Weird! Dear Peter, We're sorry to let you know that your recent...

    Brake upgrades

    Correct, price per side of front axle. Bonnies etc run with just one. You probably wouldn't get the stock front brakes from Triumph for that either though.;):( Well I was wrong on this one, about half the price for stock if Bike Bandits pricing is correct...

    Contact him via eBay, as you can see from his other ebay listings he makes them for all brands and models of bikes and is no doubt copying Corbin's R3 ones too! Any way get a 2.3 for less than half the cash and have fun modding it! I cannot remember if I have Alex confused with this bloke...
