Switchgear and grips
« on: September 08, 2011, 05:06:15 AM »
Progress is coming along nicely on the carrion build, but I have one ridiculous eyesore that is destroying the bikes look. The grips and switchgear.

I've been having a look, and the best fit I can find is the sparx switches:

These are replicas of the gear on 76-78 triumphs, though not exactly cheap at $250 for the pair shipped over here.

Chopper style micro switches are another option, but once I cover all the controls my bars will look like they have chicken pox

The grips are a little easier, coke bottle style in brown should fit the bill nicely.

So I guess what I'm asking, is do you guys have any suggestions on alternatives?

NFieldGear sells vintage switch gear:

No pics, sorry.  I think they're mostly meant for the iron barrel bikes but you could probably adapt them.  They're a little cheaper.

Thanks Scotty, will check em out, maybe see if I can see the switches from one of the boys in the Dubai club (should have thought of that earlier :-\ _

Maturin, you've just given me some more inspiration for the graphics, Cheers ;D

Just waiting on the exahust to come in and I finally get to ride her!
