How come you have two barrels and muzzle breaks? Did you make the new ones yourself?

Hi,

Wheels and barrel looks to have been machined by Pete Fertl around 2008. He offered a machining service if you sent parts to him.

Cheers

Fantastic :-) Just love those reworked spacers for the roadwheels. they are really an improvement compared to my 2003 spacer setup. I still have outer wheels spinning the oposit way when driving. It does not affect the driving capabilities, but its really anoying when filming and watching afterwards.

Does Pete still offer this re-work

Was dreading using epoxy putty to make the simulated welds along the pannier gussets, instead I used an epoxy glue I've used for many yrs building rc jets ...stuff stays where you put it ! just ran a little bead and waited for it to start hardening ...couple of hrs as it is a slow cure...hit it with a texture tool and was done..quick and easy..results are satisfactory

Those are perfect welds. I'm going to have to rip my milliput out and use the loctite. What tool did you use?
