My good mate and riding buddy ozzyfzr,

knocked this up for my Daytona it would fit my Sprint as well as the two bikes share the same swing arm.

But I have a PB hugger on the Sprint & I already pinched my hub nut cover off the Sprint for my Daytona!




He might tell me off for posting these without wiping my grubby paw marks off it first.

ozzyfzr is a bit of a whiz with all things technical and anything with metal. Don't ask me how he did it 'cos I haven't got a bloody clue!

But it does look magic doesn't it?:hearts:

Thank you ozzyfzr, bloody brilliant!:thumbsup:

Sure looks pretty Dave but it will mean more polishing.

You never used to be the bling boy. Has the Daytona corrupted you? :D

Man I don't know Dave, I just removed my stock aluminum lower chain guard cuz I figured it was just extra weight. :unsure:

Gotta hand it to you though, good job shagging that Michelin. :welldone:

Oh NO!! NO NO NO NO NO!!!!

Dave,

you need to get out and ride the ar5e off it!

It's only a small step from that to having chrome bits you have to polish each time you ride, and then..... it's a Hardley Ableson :eek:

Only kidding. Looks nice, there are similar items on ebay with Triumph stamped out of the side... the black one tempted me, but I resisted ;)

No need to worry about the weight, it is made from 0.9mm Polished SS, hardly weighty at all. Almost the same weight at the plastic one!

I was also concerned about the weight of the lower chain guard (shark fin) so I milled it thinner and increased the slot widths by a few MM. :YellowWink:

Just kidding. To save weight, I only ate one Happy Meal instead of two. :HappyRoll:

Nice guard, though. Now the boys with the lasers have something at aim at as you go by. :p

I was kinda hoping the lasers would be reflected!

Funny about the burger, Ozzyfzr was doing the tech thing in the pits, (last weekend at the track) as he does for another of our riding buds who races, the racer dude says to ozzy between races; "hey we need to tweak the back shock I need more weight on the back and less on the front"

I said "why don't I just get you two burgers and you scoff 'em problem sorted!"
