Default WFO fender braces

Hey gang, Now that I've retired my dirt bikes, I'm getting reacquainted with my other vice. I've found a couple of sets of the fender braces I had from years ago.
These are made from T-6160 aluminum, machined slots for hardware and given a brushed finish. I may start a production run soon so in the meantime here's a chance to jump on these now.
Each set is $60 plus shipping in conti-us.

Thanks!

I'm curious what the weigh difference is between your aluminum ones and stock ones .

It's been nearly 20 yrs. since I did that comparison but the aluminum was less of course.

Larry they came yesterday and I put them on today.

I did have to drill a couple holes for my overflow bottle bracket but just use the original over yours as a template.

I just need to get a couple of nice shiny bolts to match the bolts you provided for the overflow bracket.

I did weigh them and they were about 2 1/2 pounds lighter than the stock ones each.

Very nice product.

Do you know what size bolts and nut clips are used for these braces? I know you're in the business of selling, but I already have an OEM set. I just need to buy the right hardware.
