Had a set of these once, really liked them. Would like to obtain another set.

If somebody has a pair laying around unloved, if you'd like to get rid of them, give me a shout please.

American dollars at the ready.

Assuming I hang onto the 86, I will be waiting for the single tube to become available. Not sure it'd fit the persona of the Anniversary Bike.

Need to email me to "reserve" a set. I don't stock the single tube version so we make them to order. I think I have three sets on order now and at least one set reserved with a second as a maybe.
My email is one2dmax@aol.com

Sean old buddy, put me on the short list for a set of the single tube braces.

If you have a decent powder coater and are willing to have that done, shoot me a PM and let me know how much that adds. Regardless, I need a pair.

Yes, I have a powder coating rig on the premises. But, it has issues at the moment.

Naturally.

Here’s the deal boys and girls. It was worth the wait! As I noted at the beginning of this thread, I had the Dale Walker braces sometime back on my 94. I loved them, tried to get them again, and they are no longer available.

Wouldn’t you know it, Mr. Morley stepped up. It should have been no surprise that he had the service available. It took me about an hour to get them on, that’s including going back to the recycling barrel and fishing out some hardware that I accidentally pitched with the box.

Fit and finish are first rate. The first thing I noticed was that the tubing Morley uses is a bit fatter than the Dale Walker braces (as I recall). I like that. Hardware was included, I changed one thing – the upper front bolt on the left side was a bit short and I needed a spacer to compensate for the crash guard thickness on that side.

Another happy customer (and don’t mind the dirt, this machine is RIDDEN)

Very nice DM. Was jealous for a day but had a surprise sitting at the door today! Thanks Sean!!
Get after it!

I am a big fan of subtle mods. All out customs are nice, but (and my 79 CBX not withstanding) I like the stuff that looks like the factory might have done it. Or should have.

I mentioned above that Sean's braces were larger diameter than the Dale Walker set I had on my 94. Looks like my memory was faulty. Near as I can tell, they are virtually identical. Which is a good thing as that's EXACTLY what I was looking for. Unfortunately, digging up old photos of my '94 had me kicking myself for ever selling the dang thing. That was a very nice Vmax.
