So I got started on the new tail piece and side cover plugs, they're rough but this is the direction that I'm going in, just needs some more refinement. I'm leaving the country for about 5-6 months so no progress will be made till i return :( in the meantime i will keep an eye on the projects going on here so i can live vicariously through some of the awesome builds going on.

Hey Doc', by any chance could you make, send & sell me some of those frame braces ? It'd be very interested. My bike is coming apart this week. ( Jan. 1st. 2013 ) and it would be a good time to stiffen up the frame. Thanks. Michael J.

I like the design of this, but I had a thought. What if in the lower triple tree you machined the proportion valve body into the lower frame. to hide it and clean up that area? I would be interested in buying such a beautiful piece as that. Let us know. Michael J.

Thank you for sharing this info.

I have 1 set of triple trees out there with the splitter built in, pretty clean setup.

Don't have any, I don't take a lot of pictures of other peoples stuff, don't know why? Next set will get pics, doing a set for mine with more offset to speed up the steering a little.
