Bar ends Mk2 or is it 3?

Ok The 'creative juices' started flowing again and this time I thought I'd raise the bar a bit and make these a little more special.
This time I turned a stainless steel 'core' to a 3 degree taper and incorporated it into a brass 'cage' also at 3 degrees ....kinda symbolizing the 'strong' MV motor caged in by the 'beauty' of the tubular frame.
I still wanted these bar ends to exceed the weight of the OEM ones..(for obvious reasons) and I've taken some shots of this along with others for comparison to 'previous' ones I made http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=43206 and some shots of the 'components' needed to make one bar end
Here's how I got on.
