Thanks for the link to the image bosco -- I'd been having a hard time figuring out what the MS clamps would look like (they don't have an image on their web site.) I like your ideas for mounting home-made lowers. I've been imagining something similar, but need to find the time to try out the ideas.
I actually have an email out to MS to check the compatibility of their lowers with the batwing with their add-on wind deflectors. With the batwing, the turnsignals can't be moved at all, and they clamp to the forks right where the MS clamps appear to go. WE'll see what MS says when they get back to me!
