Clubmans look like cheap crap, and clipons are too "single purpose", and no fun for daily riding, so the only people who benefit are Chiropractors.

I love my Laverda Jota adjustable bars, they look way better than clubmans, and are far easier to live with than clipons. Regardless, if you're going to use either, get some rearset's or you will not only look silly, you won't enjoy the ride.  Cheers, Terry. ;D

I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Those are cool, I'm starting my cafe build monday I'll have to look into those, I wonder how hard it would be to make some rearsets. I have access to a full metal shop with lathe and mills and stuff.

With all that equipment at your disposal mate, you can make some really nice rearsets, and probably some nice bars to go with them! Cheers, Terry. ;D

Clubman's look better & might be a little less painful.
