Interest in superbike style lifters w/o chain adjusters

Dale James is gauging interesting in machining up some superbike style lifters that can be used without his chain adjusters. Currently he only has a design for the Sp1. (someone else was making these and Dale spoke with him and found out that he won't be making more so Dale asked him if it was ok to improve and remake these - gentleman said yes).

If you're interested in possibly owning these let
Dale know... His website Home | RaceTorx has a contact page or you could IM him from the forum and let him know your thoughts about them. Preliminary designs shown below:

Show below are Dale's final design for the Superbike lifters that do NOT require chain adjusters. He is taking pre orders starting Tues. 10-31-17 on his website: Home | RaceTorx

Do the lift brackets fit on the Giles set? Is it the same bolt spacing? If so I might be interested as well.

NOt sure if these would fit the Gilles. You may want to PM Dale. Hopefully he can tell you if they will or not.
