CRF1000 Africa Twin customer customizing his bike...
« on: August 26, 2016, 02:32:17 pm »
customer of ours re-visited our shop today to show us his modifications to the Africa Twin:

grid-style headlight guards (he lives on a dirt road, in the Platteland...)
crash bar side in-fill grids, yet to be painted black...
exhaust protection plate, to prevent accidental burns...
an interesting 'cage' for securely attaching a soft top-box...
some other bits and pieces...
he bought the fork-mounted spotlight brackets from us, and they came out nicely!

Always enjoy it when someone makes his own bike 'his'! (or hers  ;D )
Cheers

different customer...

customer with his own fabrication shop popped in to show us his 5L red fuel cell attached INSIDE his Rumbux rear pannier rack, very secure, misses the swing-arm, and is strong, yet light, using AHLF channel to support it.

Clever!
