I prefer stubby bar ends, both to look at and use.




Although... I do have some curved X-Lite's on my Diabolo :roll:

hi
up till now i have been trying to keep this build as original as possible.
but what do you think about this little touch?
wouldn't hurt would it? :wink:
would have prefered white lettering on green but there is yellow
lettering on the avocet racing saddle.
as you might be able to tell, i'm getting close.
small details now. :)
