SOLD PP.
MC1 over size for Attitude, Adroit or Adept, 150mm center of bar to stem bolt, it has a rise which I think is 10 degrees. Recently re-painted in Dolomite green by Martin of Etoe in Germany I believe but it had been cut down prior to this and it has not been fitted to a bike since. It has now been extended back to 580mm width. This process involved machining extentions which slot inside existing bar with an interferance fit. Then the join area was welded together and the welds taken back by hand. The machined pieces have a thicker wall compared to the original bar so that it will not crush should bar ends be fitted.

The paint has blistered along the bar but 95% of that will be covered by the grips, brakes etc. This could be fitted to a Dolomite without the need for repainting. Note that the paint around the stem bolt head has a small crack in it and a small area has gone a slightly darker green, see pic.

£190 posted in UK, please ask if elsewhere, Paypal Gift preferred or add 4% to cover fees, reply here first then PM me please.

I am happy to discuss part exchanging this for another over size MC1 that has been cut down.

I also have an HLF version available.

Cheers, Ash.

There should be a thread for swapping mc1's so we could all have them match the fuselage! :(

There I was wondering has anyone else done this. I got a local small engineers to make me up some bar extensions to restore back to the proper length. I had them bored out with a solid end for the same reason. These MC1s look a real nice fit though - nice tidy weld to.

GLWS by the way - steve
