hi,

A buddy of mine up in here in Johannesburg has a set that was previously powdercoated blue.

He wants R700 for the set including a special breather/chrome oil cap,guess you will have to arrange the courier

Send me your email adress or contact number if you interested,he could mail you a pic.

Cheers Uvi
