I always liked the idea of people meeting in the middle (62.5%) and both sides doing better buy eliminating the store. i am asking 62.5% of the replacement cost. ($1216 at Sierra) asking $760 plus shipping
let me know if any questions, and I apologize in advance if I am out of the fair market range.

Probably a fair price, but too much for me after the UK will add various taxes

it has been pointed out to me that KFM in Germany has the parts listed for approx $700, definitely worth checking out. If valid, I'm to high and I'll will retract rather than lower my price, I am going to be happy to have them if I ever sell this great Machine.

I have finally got round to fitting the armrests, with an aluminium bar secured to the underneath of the top box carrier, with two bolts, plus the armrest screws. It took half a day to plan and half a day to implement.

Definitely, practical and a great saving from the BMW "gold dust" armrests.

I have uploaded a couple of pictures. Hope it inspires others looking for a decent alternative to BMW optional armrests.

If anybody is interested, there is a secondhand armrest set on ebay at the moment.
I am not connected to the seller in any way, but thought it might be of interest here.

I can't see from the pics if all parts are included, so make sure you know what you are bidding on.
