    Did you get your shocks? I ordered a pair as soon as I saw your post, got the order confirmation email, and when I didn't get shipping info after a week, I followed up.

    Eurotech said they did not have the shocks in stock, and were not sure they would be able to fill the order ....

    Same story for me, they shipped some of the parts but not all of them, said they are backordered and since they are going out of business will not fill the rest of my order, I received 1 pushrod tube instead of the 4 I ordered, I knew it was a gamble with a company going out of business, so I will have to source somewhere else.

    I do not believe that is legal. They should not charge you for parts not shipped. With a company going out of business, I would get that cleared up right away.

    Assuming (always dangerous) you used a credit card.... call your bank immediately and request a "charge back".

    Eurotech

    They proved to me that they did not charge for items not sent, so I am going to have to find 3 more pushrod tubes and the shocks somewhere else.

    Thanks,

    Rear Sets Welding

    Josh and a buddy did some welding on the rear sets of my bike. They were not very sound and they have rewelded and reinforced everything very nice. Here are some pictures of before and after.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Thanks for the compliment on the welding.

    Does anyone have any ideas on where I can get a piece of trim for the seat, see previously in the thread, any ideas would be appeciated, see the photograph of the girl on the bike.

    Thanks,
    Shane
