    I LOVE that rear bar. Is that custom made Andy?? Or where did you get it from? :):)

    Hi Pap

    The rear,I had it made,trying to stop it from burning with the flames.

    cradle was sprayed like the factory does, to much work to powder coat.

    Excellent! Rear looks awesome mate! :):)

    Painted cradle is the go. I am deciding what to do with mine when I pull it to do the major service. :D:D

    Paint or coat? :D:D

    I see the need for that rear bar to stop it melting. ;);)

    Enough to scare the crap out of a CS but not enough to take a Scud. Scuds got too much mid range pull.
