Dan,

If your interested I have a nice set of bombers in yellow with silver CNC brace and blue adjusters

They are Z4 lowers as they have a disc mount with Z2 internals.

Built by me and currently on my Caldera that I had at the Brandon meet.

Mine are 65mm travel and I can supply canti studs.

Let me know if your looking for a trade.

M
