There will be Joker Machine CB750 Café Racer Triple Trees on my motorcycle in 2011.
The pieces are already in the making, and I am really looking forward to install the CNC parts.
Specifications: Aerospace grade materials, 7075 Aluminium, and built in brake fluid manifold, for a really clean brake line set-up. Nice…
