custom made rearsets

So I really want my ride in race shift with some solid looking rearsets, had some Aluminium flat bar to play with, also had an angle grinder a drill and a file. What do you guys think.

Looks functional.....like most of the GP fitted out race bikes. Aesthetics are a bit sacrificed but i think you may have been going for that utilitarian look, yes? Certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

Be carefull, what grade Ally is that, you might find it will bend under your weight. I make my own heel guards to keep my foot out of the wheel on the R/H side and they bend all the time.

Even if it's not a special Alloy, the thickness used in said fabrication looks chuncky enough surely?

Pegs look like 6000 series (shine after machining) little tougher. Brackets look like 5000 series (softer) may bend but shouldn't brake. I'd give them a try.

I think you've made them a little on the big side.They seem to dwarf Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus in the lower left corner of the first picture.....

Since the rearsets are an integral part of bike safety I would be incline to use use at least the stock rearsets.

If you wanted after market rearsets, go for at least the FBF rearsets. Great value and you know its going to work and has fully adjustable positions.

With the Aussie dollar so strong you can get the FBF rearsets at a great price!

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Good one Smokey.

I've made rearsets for previous bikes as well, yours look fine.

Here is the shifter I made for my Brutale.
I've since rounded it up a bit so must take a new picture.

Nothing better than making something yourself.

Dave.
