    those look like fab kevin’s stuff!

    Those were a great idea when Fab Kevin came up with them the first time. Ripping off his design however, requires no skill or intelligence.

    Would not want to get into the discussion as to who first came up with a saddled out mount but would question if a cotterpin would hold up to a rider and springs actioning against a pin for hold point, threaded shaft might be something to consider?

    Yes, they do look like Kevin’s parts; I have a set myself. But how do you guys know he is not producing them for Lowbrow? I know for a fact that Kevin produces private label parts for other companies, which is pretty common in this and every other industry.

    I machined the same parts in 1998. Welded them up on a rigid and rode like the wind! Who is first? Its not Fab Kev! And its not me either! Get a life, quit sucking ass.

    I agree with J G. though Fab Kevin is very good at what he does but I’ve been reading some old Ed Roth Choppers Mags fron the 60’s and most stuff has already been done.
    They were even using sulky wheels for big diameter front wheels.

    Those were the days my friend

    Ps Fab Kevins article on the Burt Munroe Challenge here in New Zealand was bloody great.

    Many thanks to him.I rode down there and the weather was as bad as he says.

    PSS the article is in the Horse mag a great read…so rush out and buy one now…

    I don’t usually weigh in on these things, but how the hell is this an invention? It’s a piece of steel turned to the diameter of the seat spring and coped to suit the frame rail. It was probably ‘invented’ by the first guy who ever needed such a thing decades ago. That said, I think it’s great that people are offering them for sale as I would rather buy one for $26 than spend half an hour machining a one-off set from scratch. Russell Mitchell.
