    Nicely done Claude. It's great when you can keep the original rims. How hot do you get them ? Annealing temperature ?

    One question though .... that throttle assembly ..... looks like a Chinese copy as it does not have 'Made In Sweden' cast into it. I would raise a serious question here as I think they are dangerous. I was lucky when I had an issue some years ago. Several friends have not ....

    yeah a pair of magura perches and levers are about 75 dollars, but its a shame to put cheap imitations on good looking bikes. those levers break instead of bending, while the maguras can be straightened many times with a little heat. i even took the domino off my 95 and installed a magura on it..lots of adjustment and it has that great feel!

    Those quality components are a big reason why Husqvarnas are known to be high quality machines.
