Fantastic Fournales

"Hi Bertrand, my bike is a 1978 Low Rider. I purchased a set of Fournales from you in 1989. Since that time I would have easily done some 600,000 kilometres, on all types of roads. I have always ridden the bike pretty hard and with the Fournales the ride has been exceptional. I highly recommend them to anybody who is thinking of purchasing…
