    BST 5" Rear

    I've been talking to Damian from BST. I need to guage support for a 5" rear
    I've got a 5.5 and as we all know this cuts down tyre choice and profile.

    He seems semy interested but I need to show him we have buyers here.

    So let me know who would stump up for a 5' If they did a run??

    seeing this is just a concept so far it would be hard to put a price on em(I'm flat out convincing them to do it) but saying that I'd say not more than what the local distributor sell them for.. put it this way if Mickah was saying that OZ wheels would be $2200 a pop these would cost less than that and be lighter..

    I payed $1795.00 + freight for the front $2045 for the rear( he gave me a 5% discount)
    obviously if i can get ten guys here there would be another discount.

    Thanks for the info but count me out unfortunately. I've got too many toys to splash out that much.

    Way back when there was a group buy on here to garner support for a 4.5" or 5" version. The group buy was minimum of 10 but it fell through.

    There might now be enough disposable income amongst RS250 owners to make that target.

    I am absolutely sure that if they just made the first one they would have sold more than 10 by now.

    The most modded bike on the planet and they can't see a market? Are they blind!!! Yes the wheel will come complete, ready to go.
    Remember I'm not asking for a deposit just let me and Damian know if you would buy one if it were available.
