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

Sunday, 20 February 2011



so many things still to do but running out of stuff without the wheels, sunday afternoon, sort out the primary side footpeg hanger, i've run rearsets for the last couple of years, but, to be honest, with the combination of low seat height, old bones and acute leg to footpeg location, i've decided to bin them and go back to mid controls, typical me, had the footrest mounting powdercoated then realised i had to chop the bracket up, hacksaw the casting, drop on the miller to clean up and paint the bare metal with smoothrite, stand on the radiator to dry while we knock up a pair of footpegs out of 25mm roundstock, 75mm long, counterbored for lightness and knurled on the lathe and tapped out 8mm to mount them off the primary case, other hoodies are available but my batman logo one is my favourite.....
