Oh, see it now, didn't read properly. Maybe they just forgot to send it.
No personal experience but heard from local guy who also makes cases that some people had some trouble with them (waiting for their orders long time.)
Hope that won't be the case with you and that everything will be OK.

I emailed the guys there asking about my centre stand before ordering and was told that the lead time would be about a month. They emailed me back about a month later to say that they had fabricated me one (I hadn't sent any money at that point) and were ready to ship it to me, so I paid via Paypal and got the stand within a week (delivered to England).

They are solid guys, I've talked to, and read posts from several people who have bought from them, and while they're not the fastest guys to get things done they come through with really good products at an excellent price!

They are adventure riders and fabricators firstly, and businessmen second I think, but their stuff really is worth the wait in my opinion (and no, I'm not on commission LOL).

I'm sure your order will get to you soon mate :)

its only been a week or so, they never mentioned anything about lead times etc, guess i'll have to just be patient.

Be patient, it's worth it.

I bought the heavyduties and the sw-motech centre stand, and in comparison the one from heavyduties is far better (nicely welded, good powdercoating, and well thought out, can be mounted without removing the exhaust).

Hi!

I got my panniers made at Heavy Duties. Took a while because they needed to get a hold of an RD07 for an exact fit (probably due to me ordering a cutaway pannier for the right side). Here's the full kit on my bike (stickers added by me):






Edit: once they were done with the construction the shipping only took a week. Also the price was unbeatable. Got the full kit for the price of a single Touratech pannier :)

Hmm, Are you Vincent, and your rebuilder is Dave? If so, I'm Simon with the fecked output shaft from Facebook :)

Just, 'do it once do it right' is what Dave said to me, is all - Good advice :thumbup:
