I'll give you the $250 right now for those if you take em off ebay before someone bids on em. Doing that you also wont have to pay the 3% selling fee and the paypal fee. Let me know.

How tall are you half shell? Did you like riding with the forward controls? Do they make low speed manoevers more difficult? I need more leg room on the vn750, but think I will be better served with highway pegs and leave the stock controls were they are. They look good though, and I`m sure someone will buy them.

I am about 6.3. I loved the forward controls they helped me alot while riding. with the original controls my legs would get cramped after about 30 minutes. The forward controls did help me with manoevers, but it may be different with other people because of their hight.

Someone who has mechanical skills needs to buy these, make a pattern, and get us out from under Jardine's thumb on this. I think about 50% of us who have this bike want them, everyone who is over 5' 8".

I would be willing to chip in if someone would be willing to do this. It's way beyond my abilities right now, but if someone could make forward controls for this bike at a reasonable price I bet they could sell 50 sets easy.
