    Who's in Japan?

    Who's in Japan? I'm looking for these radiator end-caps... I'm assuming these are a couple of Japanese Bros in the photo...


    Fabian, do you think your friends at Wagner Kunsttofftechnik could re-create these?

    Rory was in Japan, haven't seen him on here in awhile so he must've gotten his Bros sorted out. Spending all his time in the mountains no doubt

      I'm thinking about going to Tokyo in a couple weeks. If I can figure out where the motorcycle shop district is, I'll keep my eyes open.
      There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count, and those who can't.

          Do you think that them end caps are fiberglass or plastic??? How hard do you think they would be to make??

                I think the tank is stock but the seat cowl is definitely different...not sure that I like it.

                    Those are infill panels on the red bike. I'm pretty sure Targa used to make them. Plastic triangles that cover the gap under the back of the tank/front of the seat. JE used to have a pair ages ago, don't know if he still does. Perhaps those were Targa radiator covers as well? I'd never seen them before.

                    I know someone else posted that pic on here before. I'd say find out where they got the image. That might give a clue to where they came from.

                      I have seen them too lately.
                      Thought to myself these make a nice replacement
                      for everyone who ruined the stock panels which are rather hard to find.

                      IŽll put my feelers out for a set unless someone on here has them already.

                            allright, I think I can get a panel project up and running
                            thats the orig website the parts are sold from
                            which is probably the manufaturers outlet store page...
