Very nice! I had the same rearsets on my Interstate with the European bars. (At least until I crashed it a few months ago.) I found the passenger pegs were too close to the rider pegs so I made a new set of plates from stainless steel to move the passenger pegs up and back a couple inches. I can send you the pattern if you like, but with the humpback seat maybe you don't really have a need?

How do you like the adjustable bars?

Really nice, looks good in grey. Off to Mick Hemmings tomorrow to look/buy rearsets and Norvil fairing and wondered what make yours were. Ron made a point I realised about passenger toe to rider heel clearance and I see you have your gear pedal pivot via the rear stud on the Z plate triangular mount. Is it the same kind that otherwise bolts thru the plate's centre recess. Cheers.

thx guys
the rearset are from frank at clubman racing - the passenger pegs are to close but i don't really ride 2 up very often - so not a big deal - the adjustables bars are are OK, actually very very cool - but w/ the interstate tank i had to put some 0.8 risers on to keep the bars from hitting the tank - no big deal
thx

RonL, I would very much appreciate your offer for the SS template!
When the OWMBOed spotted the rearsets it was a fast scramble and they haven't been installed YET.. Thank you! commando.chris@yahoo.com

Keith, Clubman rearsets are from RGM, on your side of the pond...
