Update 12-20-11
Design and production are going well. We will be able to keep the price at 55.00 for the first production run of 100 pieces.



First I must "Thank You" to PAPA for giving up the drawing and letting us make the bracket. I spoke to him and he gave us his blessing.

Second to Greg Riddle for requesting info if we could make the bracket.

The down under bracket relocates the brake caliper to hide behind the pipes and give your bike a cleaner look.

Our Down Under Brake Caliper Bracket will be made from Stainless Steel.
The bolt, lock nut, and washer provided will also be of stainless steel.

We will start cutting material this week and have a target shipping date of the end of January.

The first 25 pre-orders will get the discount price of 55.00. (pre-orders save 5.00)

Here's our website to pre-order. www.glensvtxgarage.com

The first prototype bracket is off the cnc and on my bike.

We are making some design changes to make it easier to install.

Our target ship date is January 30 or sooner.

Thanks for waiting.

I'm real curious as to the design change, could you elaborate as to what you changed, curious minds want to know 8) It looked pretty much the same with the exception of a self locking nut.

Hey Glen, I just ordered the gas cap hinge for the 1800c and the brake caliper bracket. You can wait till the brake caliper bracket is done to send both. I am in no hurry. Thanks, can't wait to install and ride my bike again. Haven't ridden since July due to work injury where I shattered bones in my foot. Hopefully I will be back on the bike soon.
