Raw billet smooth axle covers (Fender Stays)
You cannot use the stock pulley, you will need to use their Pulley ($95.71) and Caliper Kit ($535.7). So far the bill goes to $2800. On top of that you need to add the rear wheel and tire... easy another $1400 ($1100 the wheel if not chromed, chromed is more + $300 the tire).
I actually like the swingarm look, it is slick... I just don't like the way the caliper is designed to break, directly on the pulley. Those pulley screws will destroy in no time the break pads, creating an uneven contact (you can see it in the picture the offset created, the plates are already chewed):
This is the actual Warrior:
You brake on chrome plated pulley? Never heard that before... In real life, the rear brake is like 5% of the full bike breaking power, but is extremely important to control the bike properly on low speeds and slippery situations. The seat needs to be customized to eliminate the big space between
the fender also... Or simply get another custom seat ($400 easy). The stock seat will be too short and too tall.
far the bill goes over $4600... Please let me know if I'm wrong.
Thanks for the update. Some companies start up when the market is hot, but then have close. I don't know if this is the case, but their stuff looked sweet.darken_rahl03 said:I'll stick in my 2 cents.

Evan said:I have the same set up on my Yamaha like in the pic with the red bike. The pulley rotor system that they sold me works good - as I have seen that is actually the same set up as all other custom motorcycles I have seen at shows, etc. I talked with one of the guys at Blue Steel as I had the same question on the second pic showing the chrome pulley. What is hard to see in the pic is that behind the pulley is actually a rotor, that is what the calipher is grabbing on to. It's definitely a different style set up but is keeps it clean looking. They do offer other set ups. Really, people need to contact the company if they have questions. It's hard enough these days for anyone in the motorcycle industry to keep things going and we really need to support these companies that are actually putting custom parts out there for us to even choose from.
