The Bar is a one off, hand made by joining a EF Fairmint bar and an AU TS series 3 bar together. If I was to do it again I would want at least 2 grand for the bar and about 2 months to do it and it would be unpainted.

I was lucky, I picked up 2 bonnets, one with vents for $20 and one missing the vents for $5. Cutting and fitting was done by myself and full welding by a friend with the right gear. All filling and smoothing was done by myself again.
