Padgetts Promach rearsets

I have always liked the Promach made rearsets for Padgetts.They are smart and simple to setup and usually branded as Padgetts. Padgetts know a thing or two about blades so have no doubt these will be a great addition to

Honda Racing Endurance fairing bracket EWC

This is the fairing suppoort bracket used by the Honda Endurance racing team and the Musashi Harc Pro Race team.

HRC Clock Bracket

I have just picked up a unique HRC Clock Bracket. Its based on the standard version but tweaked a little. The biggest difference is the clock holder as its closer to the rider.

It will requires some work for the HM Dash but am sure it will work a treat.
