Nice. How much did those run you.

for the fat bar 34euros but for the complite front forks aouch aouch 700euro but i think it worth it and also the forks are set up from the ex owner with new kit springs WP and the service

Ouch. Just over $1000 USD depending on how the dollar to Euro was that day.



But I do understand it being worth it. Maybe not for myself but for you yes. Just like Larry building me the 6 1/3 gallon tank for my custom. Just the build section and shipping alone was $500 USD without labor. And I love it. Twice as much gas as any other cx custom that comes stock.

It is kinda funny the things we think are OK to spend money on, and those we think others might be crazy with. To each their own. I just can't get over how much people do to this bike, and I know it is just getting started!



Kneeslider, How thick are those forks?

I paid $220.00 US for my 2007 GSX-R 600 forks and about $50.00 for the radial brake calipers at a poplular online auction site. I did keep the Comstar look and for that I had to spend money to have machine work done. The front end works very well, I'm pleased to say the least. Now to tie down the rear end.

Cheers, 50gary
