who actually produced them? would be interesting to know how much new molds cost / what their threshold would be to tool them. probably not cheap...

If I remember right it was 70 Degree Racing. DaleEO may have been involved as well..... It was a while ago so my memory is a little dusty.

From the cyclebuy staff:

"Tommy,

Unless you were able to cover the cost of insurance and mold repair ($15k+/-) It isn't going to happen. The demand is there but is diminishing by the day. At this point there is not enough sales to justify continuing.

Thanks,
Aryn Richardson"

sounds like a group buy would have to be in the 30-40 range to keep it within the previous (retail) price...

Fitted my 70 degree tank today to my 570 and was extremely impressed with the quality. fitting was almost perfect. had to file the battery holding bracket bolt holes slightly, the tank must be slightly wider where the battery fits, compared to the original sub frame. a quality bit of kit. Had to be carefull with the small M5 bolts not to cross thread them. I used anti seize on all the bolts so the come out easily.
I e-mailed cycle buy 3 or 4 months ago (might be longer?) and asked them to put me on the wait list. got an e-mail 2 months ago saying they have a few left over. payed for it straight away. took a while but it arrived yesterday. It cost $479 usd plus freight.
The guy I was dealing with at cycle buy was Aryn Richardson. I guess if you e mail them they might contact the builder with the demand and repair the molds. Sounds expensive though.
cheers

Did any one ever come up with any info / posts about converting the actual subframe?

P.s. would also like to purchase a 70 degree tank.

( is a 2012 fe 570) would have converted it if it was not for the leak. looked long and hard for a suitable epoxy glue but came up with same answer, " it will eventually leak" plastic welding may work.
also built a front tool box that sits in front of the motor. It contains a custom built removable 3litre fuel tin and a few tools. that could be an option for thought.
That front tool box sounds interesting. Do you happen have some pictures of it?
