we now have a brand new 'Demo' Honda CRF1000L 'Africa Twin' on display for the next 6 months in the Flying Brick Store (no, you can't take it for a spin around the block!  ;D)...

Over the next 10 days, it will be 'accessorized' with pretty-much everything we do for these bikes...
and then kept on display int he Store for 6 months...

The 1st picture is of it, naked and shivering, in our workshop...

the following pictures of it are 50% 'farkled':

1. RUMBUX Upper, Lower and Bash-plate protection bars
2. Rockfox rear luggage plate
3. Orange Headlight protector - we offer CLEAR as well..
4. Flying Brick protection bar bags fitted to RUMBUX bars
5. MRA Vario-Touring Screen; wider, taller, and with built-in Vario Spoiler...

to follow...
6. REAR protection bars/pannier racks from RUMBUX
7. REMUS exhaust - affordable! smaller than stock! and a beautiful sound!
8. side-stand foot enlarger
and some other bling parts!

Cheers!
Chris & Team

mid-to-late August, bear in mind that a SHIP is involved, as well as CUSTOMS, so ALL dates are 'approximate'  ;D

yes, we think we already have a customer - working off-shore, who wants it, in late November, early December, that's why we have not even started it, not allowing anyone to sit on it, new must be....NEW!

Going to seek permission to fit the Remus exhaust, and then we will refit the OEM it he prefers that...

But the REMUS slip-on is very affordable, at around R6999, so I think he will want to keep it!

Thanks for your encouragement, WhiDel AND ButtSlider  :thumleft:

this morning we fitted a Wundelrlich handlebar bag, which we usually sell MOSTLY to the BMW and KTM boys...

fits like it was designed for the job, and does not obscure the clocks - bonus!

project almost complete....

RUMBUX rear pannier racks fitted, and then we have put on a set of ATG Overlander pannier bags, which fit real well.

Next steps; rear rack soft luggage bag, as well as quick-release tank bag, and side-stand enlarger.

Cheers

around R850, iirc....

Someone told me you have to cut into the rear plastics to fit the Rumbux rear pannier racks?
Yes, the cuts are quite small, can be seen with the pannier racks REMOVED,; the manufacturer builds rear 'crash bars' that double-up as pannier racks, so he wanted a particularly strong design, and went for this method.

There are a couple of other alternatives, SW-Motech, Rockfox, so you don not have to cut, but we did the Demo bike with RUMBUX front and rear, since they match.
Rockfox and SW Motech both good, solid products, too!

added Pivot-style foot-pegs, R995 per set, they have 15-degrees of rear float and 15-degrees of front float, and a MUCH better platform size....

1 problem with the Africa Twin foot-pegs is not JUST that they are incredibly small, but they are super-close 'in' to the body-work of the bike, meaning a cramped cockpit.

Pictures show the 15-degree 'float' both front and rear...

Cheers

well, we had it for a month BEFORE I posted that we would have it for 5 more months....

It was collected today  :'(

We had to un-Farkle it  ;D

There is such a shortage of Africa Twins, that out Store demo was thus sold by Honda Tygerberg...  :'(

Apparently no more AT stock coming in to the country between now and January 2017, possibly becuase of the Japanese factory-damage and maybe sales exceeding expectations?

Now, what doe we fill the gap with.... ???[/b][/size]
