A set was bought by a group of members and sent to the member who was going to fab them. He got controls, the others got the shaft. End of story.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Yes we did, even tried to get the guy to pay us back by either selling them on ebay or making payments to us that put forward the money and keeping them for himself. Niether seem to work out...hmmmmm.

That is some total BS!... I wasn't part of it and it still pisses me off!
I am sure no one will want to try this again will they?.. wish I had a fab shop and had the know how.

Not I at least, I havent riden my 750 in a very long time. Ever sense I picked up a VN1500 Classic then traded it off for a Road Star Warrior, that little 750 isnt where its at for me anymore. NOS'en up that Warrior and racing the Devil himself down the strip at 220mph with a 110 ci motor is where its all at, I tell you.
