One of the chaps on Aprilia forum bought a lovely tuono nose from these at a fraction of the price of full on carbon. Well pleased with fit, finish, fast delivery and didn't even get his leg lifted by customs.

Loads of Buell bits ...

Dunno really, like the look of a few bits on the R but don't think it would look so great on the M2.

I bought a flyscreen for my yellow S1 from them. It's not bad but it's bling rather than anything else cos it is a carbon layer with a fibreglass matrix behind it.

My M2's all carboned up and I like it (sure there's a song in there somewhere), only colour left is the seat unit, certainly makes spray jobs cheaper.
:yup:
