Bike Crash Bars - who can do this??
« on: November 26, 2020, 01:22:57 pm »
Hi Guys

I'm looking at having crash bars built on an old Tenere 600. I'd like a crash bar around the tank, but also incorporating a headlight/screen bar, much like an old bike I had, the 100 GS Paris Dakar.

Anyone can, or knows anyone who can?

Maybe my biggest hassle would be to get a XT600 to the Supplier as template.........maar dis ander dag se stories.

THANKS

I always see new project advertised on Rockfox where they experiment with new things (that Africa Twin Rally version comes to mind)

Maybe speak with @Mike Adendorff

Who knows, lightning might strike.

They are in Cape Town though...

I see the incorporated headlight/fairing thing wont work, the GS has a fixed fairing.........

But a fairing/headlight bar would be VERY nice, especially since I would like a screen, and want to fit that on the " bar ", not the plastic bits, something like attached pics

Yes, I SECOND that Mike/Rockfox MIGHT make some up, that man IS busy, and we want his head down, building stock :)
Anyhow, TWO C-A-P-E riders of near-identical XT 600's you can contact who may allow Mike to template their bikes for crash bars are:
1. Deon 084 4888 990
2. James Bain 072 625 9547

Chris - thanks for the above.

Guys, anyone knows anyone who can do this maybe??

Obviously the nearer to me the better, otherwise I'll try beg/steal/borrow another 600 as template.

to CLARIFY -one or both of those two numbers may WANT crash bars fopr their own bikes, so do consider if you do not come right closer to home.
Cheers
