    Default F650CS Scarver - Tank Plastic Bars / Handels

    Hi,

    I am looking for any users who might have some ideas as to where I might be able to get another pair of plastic tanks bars, plus the other parts near the headlight too, sas they are all cracked and would bring the bike back to life with new ones?

    I have done a little research into having a set cast, but there must be someone who has a set that they no longer need or could put me in touch with a place I could get them?

    Thoughts and ideas please?

    Many thanks

    Hi there, I have just picked up a scarver today. I have noticed that the handles on mine are starting to crack. I am in the fortunate position of having a friend who runs a small foundry that specialises in casting decorative items (just now he is making a hippo in bronze ) so when I next see him I will ask how much they would cost to produce and would be be prepared to do some.

    Hu guys, just to let you know I haven't forgotten about this thread. I have been working lots of overtime and have not had time to see my friend. Hopefully I will be able to see him next week. As soon as I have news I will report back

    Hi all , I spoke to my mate Chris last night about the tank handles and he says yes he can make them . So if anyone has an old set or two to use to make moulds that would be great, unfortunately these would be lost during the manufacture of the alloy ones so no good ones from your bike. Also someone asked about the screen mountings and these are even easier to make,so I will use my undamaged ones to get alloy ones made during the winter. Meant to say the tank handles need to be cut in two and extended to allow for allow for shrinkage when they cool so they have to be made slightly longer when being cast and thats why old ones are needed.
    If you have parts needed please pm me

    So what price indication did you get , if it's not too wild mine (not the windscreen ones) can be missed in winter if I get casted ones in return for reasonable cost.

    I will be speaking to my friend tomorrow evening and will try to get more details. Because of having to cut and modify the rails to allow for shrinkage when they cool, good serviceable parts cant be used hence the request for old one's.

    I understand mine will be lost in the process but given their cracked state they need replacing anyway in next months.. We'll talk after you have a cost estimate.. Richard
