brilliant work, I agree that aesthetically the window bars dont suit it, low z bars or apes or british style or dogbones, would look better imo, even halving the height of the window ones would help, again imo

I like that set-up Shaun, Lends it self well for a mechanical advantage one way or the other.

Looks slick as Snail shit Mike, The bars well scratch narrow them up a bit for
f cks sake. Laughing pale
