Its not thick enough to drill and tap if that's what you're wondering. You would need to weld a boss on to do any sort of drill/tap.

I don't have any T5 crossmembers on hand right now, so while I wait for more to be made, I "adjust" the price so no one buys any. Once they are physically back in stock, the price will go back down to normal.

That makes sense, keeps you from having to delist and relist the item and make less work overall. Nice.

Are you the only person that is currently making this? And also is anyone making the big front brake caliper adapter bracket or T-Bird MC bracket these days?
You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried, pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp in potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich....

The guy that sells the Merkur watches does the same thing.
Puts a price on $1999 on them when he's out and removes the last "9" when he's got some.

Blugg has some T5 crossmembers and brackets, too. (Just not powdercoated blue)

We have big front brake stuff, rear disc brake stuff, and working on master cylinder adapter right now...
