cool. i'll leave this open for a week or so and see if we can get enough people to make it worth while for everyone.
Um, you did know Buddha has fork braces available, right?
Nope not any more - round ignition covers yes, pay up suckas and ... last few on those as well. Fork braces yea reload is your best bet now.
I love it when people ask for pics ... you'd think they've never seen a fork brace ... which if that is the case, never mind the pics, get one now cos it is needed to keep the thing from wiggling all over the place.
I dont have the time to run after the machinists and the material and what not, I did all that in 09 when I was unemployed, in 2010 when I was unemployed I made the west coast run, and in 11 so far have had a job, so its rather slim pickings. These things take a lot more time and $ and work than any one ever imagines. Crap goes awol, machinists die (my stem guy did) they leave em in the dirt and it gets rained on, bolts dont show up for the things ... 100 things to go wrong, and most of them do.
BTW I dont know if reload is doing bolts too, but you need 3/4 inch or so for a 3/8th thick brace, and much longer like 1 inch will dig into the fender, else I'd unload my crop of bolts on you guys. But they all 1" ...
First off I have to say to Reload - I really really really
appreciate you doing the fork brace, I've been meaning to buy one... and this looks to be a good opportunity.
Buddha - Isn't it common place to ask for pics when buying things online? I know what the fork brace looks like... I wasn't asking to literally "see" what the finished product looked like....
Honestly, as you stated there can be a 100s things that can possible go wrong. I am always cautions when purchasing items online... But what if that one thing went wrong with this fork brace.... If you made a batch of 30, didn't prototype, didn't test fit a single one and if one is bad there's a good chance they're all bad, TQM. you're going to be in over your head ... granted these are fork braces and it should be easily reproduced...
Reload - I don't mean to knock you, just putting a suggestion out there... it might help to prototype at least one.. just in case.
Is your machinist really that trustworthy? If so, then I apologize...ignore everything I wrote.
P.S. count me in for one....
