OK, bleeding edge time...
Just ordered for Black Betty a set of Storm barkbuster handguards + the white LED "clearance lights" + the Amber LED blinkers;
Coupled with the custom bar risers, and the GT exhaust, and the custom rear rack, and the panniers, and the custom map, and the shorty brake and clutch levers, I make a GeeGaw count of 9. Now I have to get serious...

Bring it on I say

You guys crack me up Laughing
Tony, What are the bark busters for, Cold wind ? My soft and dainty hands could benefit from that.
The custom rack that fits 2 slabs of the brewed finest is worth at least 2 geegaws drunken cheers

You should. This is the thread to do it. Just stay away from the GRiSO geegaw thread.  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yeah Ron, barkbusters to keep my delicate hands not as cold as when exposed to sub 25 degree temps. I'll think of a few more GeeGaws that will count - like double overhead foxtails, and rear window pompoms - Oh wait they should be on the Valiant...

Right, youse cahns!
This is the GRiSO geegaw thread. Bellagio's and other munt are no permitted. You want to pose your geegaws, start your own thread.

Hence, we have the
NON-GRiSO geegaws thread

As Mr Beetle pointed out, I now have 11 geegaws now including the custom bar end weights. Fitted the storm barkbusters last night - look good - still need to fit the LED blinkers and LED running lights to them

My new geegaws tracking number has 14 entries in 6 days while being processed, shipped across USA and then international.

Arrives in Sydney 30th May, 1 entry .........................."arrived"
31st May, being shipped to delivery address.

6 days later nothing.
USPS apparently hands it over to Australia Post, must be using Skippy to deliver, probably road kill by now.

Tony, are Telstra and Aust Post related?

Update:
Hit "send" for the above bitch, and the door bell rang.
Geegaws have arrived. Very Happy

Apparently, local Post Office could access the info of when and where it was ................. But I can't!

Obviously I haven't spent enough time and money on Geegaws ......................
while waiting for the new spindle and axle to be made I've been thinking. cyclops

GRiSO and Bellagio have same bore - 95 mm.
Rocker gear for both held down by head studs/nuts.
Both use push rod operated rockers.

Mr Roper, if I was to bore through the head to use longer push rods, would Bellagio push rod tunnels line up with GRiSO rocker arms?

GRiSO pistons - 4 fly cuts each for valve pockets.
Welding / machining for gasket sealing around push rod tunnels.
Oil galleys would be the big question.
Followed by total valve weight and valve spring rates.
Compatibility of lift and duration.
Oil cooler.

Fuck those heads are ugly!
