Brackets, brackets.....

The bike was missing a rear brake cylinder and its bracket, so i got an R1 cylinder off ebay for £20 (like new) and started with cardboard, then progressed to 8mm ally plate.

GPZ1100 generator rotor

Hi all,
Has anyone got a generator rotor for a GPZ1100, even if its knackered. I want to cut the centre hub out and use it for an endurance bike so i can mount the clutch/starter gear etc.

Thanks in advance....
