    MACHINED ALUMINUM "D" BRACKET

    This is the prototype and I'm trying to generate interest to do a run of these.
    They are extremely solid and you will NEVER have to worry about breaking your bracket again!
    The prototype was designed from one of Sidewinder's kits, which means they are fashioned from the real deal. The specs are not quite perfect yet, but they will be when all is said and done.

    Questions? Comments?
    Let's start a list as to who might be into having one of these.



    Prices are up in the air until I have a better idea as to how many I will order, but we are probably talking about $150 at the most.

    May be a wee bit pricey.... as of now, but definitely looking like it would be worth it. Put me on the list! Thanks man!

    Has there been anymore news on these? 150 might seem high, but I would rather spend high then replace often

    No word yet. I just haven't had the time to get to the machine shop. Been on a 15 day stretch at work and there is no end in site. As soon as I find out more info I'll be sure to post.

    however aluminium can be anodised... that will make it black and it works with aluminium (what you guys over there call aluminum )

    I had originally tried to have it made of steel but it's WAY too expensive.
    Much, much too heavy as well.
    With any luck I'll be hitting the machine shop this week and figuring a few things out. Thanks everyone for their patience.

    Grip area looks ok, but the back curve and prong look wrong to me - to short 'n' squashed up.
