Righto i reckon this is a good place for this, if you find things that one of the other Monkeys might be into or something thats ridiculously overpriced and worth a laugh.

Heres one that i want but cant afford right now

I have seen that ad long ago,really starting to think its a buyers market out there no point flicking stuff off if you are giving it away.I have a cheap pan in my sights and wanted to keep it traditional bobber(like they did in the day)but may rethink thatoption now on that first photo alone that seat sits too high for my liking,may have to rethink things....dammit more bloody sleepless nights!

Scored this off trade me for 50 bucks, has got the wrong lens in it (US one) so it dips the wrong way, but as luck would have it (or the fact that there is only 2 main sizes of headlight out there) the one thats already on my sporty fits!

its the difuser pattern in the lens, have a look up close to your one and you should see a pattern that goes horizontal across the middle then shoot up on about a 30deg angle, its designed to light up the side of the road to give maximum vis on low beam but not affect the on coming traffic, the US ones shoot up into the oncoming traffic

these are not much more than cost price, after TM fees he'd hardly be making anything on them, so jump in while you can...!

And Justin is selling coke bottle grips for a good price, I'm not sure if they come with the throttle tube / cable holder

hey Shaun, have u got the link for the $11 coke bottle grips, the cheapest I could find were $15, cheers

(hey the only thing with the HK / China sellers, I've dealt with 3 of them, but only one turned out to be okay, the others I didnt receive all the stuff, or got the wrong stuff, & other problems, and getting anywhere with communication when something goes wrong, was really hard. Most of their stuff takes 6 days, but sometimes it can take 5 weeks ! so I hardly deal with them now. Mostly they wont action 'goods not received' until after 30 days from the date sent. You'll see it all in their feedback. But yeah, that's the way to get the cheaper leds, for sure)

way cheap, cheers bud !
yeah one of the HK sellers is ok long term, although they advertise stuff that they dont have in stock sometimes, so a headsup is to ask if they have stock first before buying. (La Rosa also do that, so always pays to check with them first if they have it). Also with La Rosa another handy thing to know is that they deal under 3 names but all the same company.
With the other 2 China sellers I got my first orders from them ok and then had problems with the rest, so I chucked it in & only deal with one now. Chinese stuff is cheap though & yeah they do have some cool stuff - good score gettin a velo stack from there bet it was way cheaper than a stateside price.
