    Call my bluff Nigguh and I'll whip ya witha steel braided maggie hose.

    Spray gold will be on the production model,or a Kentucky chrome paint with rhinestones.

    An ODB signature model is in the works

    no you wouldnt, if you hated your maguras, youd spend $45 on some adaptors, hell, youd probably spend up to $100, it might take a little while to convince yourself to, but you would because that is a much cheaper alternative to selling your 4-bolt frame.

    on the other hand, id like to see them come down below $45. i see that there are 2 or 3 people working on designs for these, so maybe that will create some competition.

    max of $30 because if i bought them from whoever is thinking of making some in this thread i'd have to get them shipped over from the US, which is a pain, i bought something from the US and it took 8 months to get here, another thing never arrived. and if it cost that much i would go in to school and get the tech guy to make me some crap ones.
