2000th post Custom MV Agusta bar ends

Ok., so it's been a while since I last made myself a nice set of 'bar ends' for the Brutale....and as this is my 2000th post I thought I'd celebrate it with an 'appropriate' set.
Obviously as the bike is Italian I thought it only right to incorporate the Italian flag with brass separating rings into the design using machined coloured acrylic.

As is customary for me I also featured a representation of the 10 spoked wheels into the end of the bar ends along with the 'MV Agusta' logo in the centre and got 'MV Agusta' engraved twice around the circumference of the end portions by a specialist engraver in Belfast.

I've endeavoured to make them a little bit more 'special' than previously and have utilised some novel items such as the threaded portions of brass valve stems to thread into machined MV Agusta logo valve dust caps sourced in Italy.

Anyway as photos tend to explain much more than words .....without further ado here is how I got on.
Brian

Brilliant like always!!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.
