It is a really nice, heavy gauge stainless piece, and i particularly like it because it puts the instruments close together.
I tried the Unity bracket initially, but it just wasn't the look that i wanted.
In a slight tweak to how it was intended, i wanted to sling the bracket under the top yoke.
This involved enlarging the holes so that the stanchions could pass through, and tapping out two small holes on the underside of the yoke to hold the bracket in place.
Maybe not to some people's liking, but I think this modification really makes the lines less cluttered.
My headlight will also be a little lower than standard, so this will also close up the gap, and keep everything balanced and in proportion.
The front wheel will be sporting one of cNw's Brembo big brake kits
I toyed with the idea of a big twin (or even quad) leading shoe drum brake, and I know that when set up correctly they can be as good as or even better than a disc brake, but I just love the look of these so much!!!
I think it will be perfect for today's stop go traffic conditions!
These are well made, low profile and give the best spread of light - they also have DOT and ECE approval.
I was very impressed with the quality of light in the demonstrations i saw, plus blown away by how little power they draw vs the amount of light they put out!
It looks a little Mad Max compared to the classic look of the tri-bar, but hopefully i'll get away with it!
As I mentioned before, i planned from the outset to go for electronic instruments.
In my mind, there was no other choice but the Chronometric Smiths Gauges from Puca http://www.puca.co for this bike!
Whilst the Motogadget gauge is technically awesome - i wanted to nod in the general direction of British
Although they are assembled in the UK, my guess is the internals are mass produced in a big international factory somewhere.
