<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">No they do not run Suzuki sprockets, at least their race rims do not that i have I have had Chicanes and Rc Comps, quality is about the same, i would base the decision on what style you like best and who will give you the best deal on price. I'm looking at Tritons right now Myself and the seabrings or maybe another set of Chicanes?????

Cycle concept, can you give me that price on that Hindle race system for the'92 GSXR 1100, and a price on some tritons and seabrings, 3.5x17 and 6-6.25x17 with and without cush drive. You can PM me if you prefer.
Thanks!

I have RC Stars on one of my bikes..it's a 'Cooler, and I like them..they were the right price.

Dwayne,

Can you get me a deal on a Murray Pro Pipe? Depending on how this week-end goes, I may be needing one for my Oil Cooler..and I need to talk to you or Phil about a head I'm picking up. Some other stuff as well.

Cheers,

Todd

I've got the Chicanes on mine and have found the durability and their blue anodising excellent. They do not (or did not) come stock with a cush drive, which is an optional extra.

That said, from the looks of their web site etc., its my guess that they are phasing out the spun aluminum Mitchell type wheels (eg: Chicane and family). While my Chicanes are shitloads lighter than my stock '93 rims, their new series of wheels are designed to compete with modern bike/wheel weights and are even lighter.

One of the two things that being an 'orphan' (discontinued) might be a disadvantage would be with their proprietary cush drive cushions. I don't know how difficult it would be to pick up spares once they shut the door. I've picked up a spare cush drive and also have a set of replacement cushions just to cover exigencies down the road.

The other thing is sprockets. Their bolt pattern is proprietary as well, sourcing (currently) their blanks from Sprocket Specialists. The non cush drive vs cush drive bolt patterns/cutouts are not interchangeable.

Like I said, I love the quality and durability of my PM Chicanes, but you should balance all the shit going in.
