Just a note to tell you how pleased I am with your work Patrick, it's impeccable.
I can vouch for Patrick (Performance Concepts). He built a beautiful fairing mount for me. He knows what he's doing and is easy to deal with.
This is one beautiful piece of work that Patrick has done for me. You have to
the welding and fab to really appreciate it.
Thanks Patrick, Top class as usual..
My lowside on the FZR proved to me how good the caps are made and that they are well worth the small investment. One of the end caps you made for me is about 1/4" shorter than when it was new. I sort of low-sided at Texas World Speedway last month and ground down the left cap (and broke a couple of ribs while I was at it), but the rearset itself was undamaged.
The Duc 900 SS SP is a nice looking bike but I felt that it lacked the fluid shape compared to the newer Duc's. After pretty much putting all the bolt on mods such as 39mm flat slides, yoyodyne flywheel, Marvic magnesium blah blah blah so on and so on I figured let's bring this good ole mid 90s Duc closer to this era and this is when I ran in to Mr. Patrick Ho a talented fabricator reaping out of Pinole Ca. (going north in HWY 80 exit as soon as you see Krispy Kream) as you can see the picture says all. An awesome job and a cool price at that. So if you have any kooky ideas in mind for your motorbike. Support your local bay area fabricator and buzz the man up... laters dudes and dudets.
This guy, Patrick done an exceptional job on Bruces Gixxer frame, The lugs broke off where the rearset bolts on. He braced and welded them back on and did a totally brill jobbie. Very professional, clean and has a nice workshop. He also makes parts from Billet, has a lathe, miller, etc...
A couple weeks ago there was a post about frame sliders, and I just wanted you guys (and girls) to know that I got my pieces back from Patrick Ho at Performance Concepts last night, and he did a great job. The welds look real strong, and are done really well. I had a great experience with Performance Concepts and would recommend him to anyone looking for frame sliders.
