That's right, the shiny, chrome plated master cylinders have arrived for Sleek Black Beauty! Like most of the shiny bits I've purchased for my Morphous, these new parts came from Dragon Custom. Here's what the new cylinder and lever assemblies look like.

I am impressed with the appearance of these units and they seem to be really nicely polished. I did notice that the brake fluid reservoirs are smaller than the stock units but I suspect that difference might be a Japanese vs. US specification difference. As long as they aren't leaking fluid, they should be fine in operation while cleaning up the handlebars at the same time.

It may be a few days before it warms up out of the single digit temperatures that we are experiencing before I feel like tearing into the SBB to install these shiny bits and I still have to receive the mirrors that I want ordered to go on top of the new master cylinder assemblies. But it will warm up a bit in a few days and then I'll spend a pleasant evening putting all the new shiny bits onto my scoot in anticipation of the upcoming riding season.

Now I just need to find a 2nd seat from a salvage yard that I can use as a mule for designing a new seat cover!
