    These are rare as hens teeth , I saw a couple of nos ones for sale in Japan a few years back, they went for over $300 each .

    I can’t beleive someone hasn’t had one reproduced in China

    Indeed, the rarest of rare spares, i've been outbid multiple times on Japanese actions so thought i'd see if i could make my own.

    I was looking at making a mould awhile back & made a perfect replica one of those,but found the locking mechanism to be a head scratcher, I then realised they look pretty s##t really, so I started making my own out of the rear seat itself. C models. 20180326_183518.jpg 20180326_211305.jpg Screenshot_2018-03-05-18-37-34.png 20180103_145613.jpg The first A model cowl I made, which is now over the "detch" in NZ somewhere. 20180411_122955.jpg 20180409_174125.jpg 20180411_122809.jpg

    Think i'll try making my own in the near future . i like the idea of the original being removable so the seat can be used although i'll never have a pillion.

    Some inspiration
