Lowering Your Bike

Ok guys i have something i would like to share about lowering your bike. Some might agree and like it and smoe may not but i just decided to share for you guys that like saving money, or getting the same quality job done at a great lower price. Ok firts off a buddy wanted to lower his bike but didnt want to spend the money on lowering links, and plus we know how to drop a bike. So he took the brackets off his bike and went to the local hardware store and found some more brackets the same thickness of the original ones, that had holes in them already. He added some holes and got some of the one already in the bracket opened up to the sizes of the new holes and there it was a lowering link! I meet him at his house and help put them on and to this day they are still on and with no problems. He can lower his bike more or let it back up to the stock position or whatever. I just though i would share this with fellow bikers . If you ask me the brackets that are on his bike now are stronger than the ones before. And what you all are waiting for is how much he paid, im not sure of the exact price but i am sure it was no more than $10 for both brackets and for the holes to get drilled thats a great deal if you ask me, i saw a guy selling his lowering links for 100 you do the math. I know some of you or some1 is going to say if it aint the original or if its not a professional i dont want it but remember this; coming from the manufactor they buy metal brackets and fabricate them, and thats the same thing my friend did bought a part and fabricated it to his specifications. So take it or leave it i know some1 out there will like this idea

That is always the case but its a matter of getting the steel that is rated for the weight. If you put on a lower grade steel you will be very un-happy and it will most likely fail at a bad time.
