Couldn't steal lloydz torque tubes name.
anyway what you guys think, mine are all seamless construction for less pressure drop. Probably start selling them..... for alot less than $525
When I seen the price at Lloyds for the torque tubes for what looks like a very simple fabrication with $40 worth of material it turned me off. The poor quality welds really did it for me you would think he would have better QA on the welds.
I do realize he did the entire R&D but still the price is pretty high.
I think I will make my own, I'm a pretty good fabricator.
On my last bike I owned over 20 years ago i refused to pay the price for the chrome accessories and fabricated my own back rack, passenger rest, saddlebag brackets, lowers, highway pegs etc. I then just took them to a local chrome shop.
I also fabricated my own bumper, winch bracket, bush guard, etc. for my 4X4 truck and had them chromed.
I did get comments on the one off custom parts and was asked where I got them I just said ‘I made them”.
I’ve turned down other people who wanted me to fabricate things for them as I do not really enjoy it as a hobby. It is for my personnel use and I pay attention to detail.
When I have fabricated things for friends in the past they get upset if the end product takes too long to make (I also work for a living and also enjoy my time off) or it is not exactly what they envisioned in their head. I won’t even fabricate for fiends anymore.
