Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has an MCC Cruise control for sale, at a reasonable cost?
Thanks in advance.  :Chocies

If you can't get a used one,  they have been upgraded to the new electronic stepper control rather than the vacuum actuated type I have.
It's a bit involved removing them, so most of us sell them with the bike.
They're not cheap at around $1100 but worth every cent on any sort of trip.  Bear in mind they are custom made in a garage on very short production runs.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

Many thanks Mr Biggles, and I agree that it would extend my riding time. Have a factory cruise control on my F6B and it is a dream on the highway. My problem is that with 3 bikes, the wife will divorce me at a further $1200 expenditure and it does not add value to the resale on the bike if I should ever want to upgrade her.
I was hoping that somewone might be dismantling and want to sell as second hand at a lower cost. I'd be happy to do the dismantling and replacement of all the bits and bobs if they are local to Sydney.
