another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Thursday, 1 April 2010


top engine mount, 10mm thick crp 8601 aluminium, best for strength and very lightweight, couldn't believe my luck when i stumbled across a piece at bakers the non-ferrous scrappies in derby, dropped it on the scales and paid 'weigh in' money for it, a piece of this 300x300x10mm thick will cost you £55, from a stockholder, i got roughly the same for 90 pence, a cut finger and twenty minutes rooting about in the shit during my dinner hour, bargain, the ball milled grooves are just for looks, i made fillet pieces to box in the frame mounting, [top of picture], this is now a recommended safety mod, the mountings crack and there is nothing to stop the engine pivoting forward and biting the road........
