General information about our shipping
Always wanted one and Merlin price made it possible - first ride out proves it was worthwhile due to much less chain noise through the lighter weight on my Orange swing arm .
Great delivery and product was just as described (normal top down). Would do business with again.
strong, lightweight and all in all the best on the market
