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

road bikes, compromise, i don't like to compromise, you are supposed to run lights, indicators, registration plates, horn's , blah, blah, blah, i haven't had indicators on my road bikes since, well whatever, they are ugly and stick out too far, i always run a mirror on my road bikes however, crucial, i'm not fitting a headlight to the sporty but i'm going to run a tail-light/stoplight, today was all about making up a bracket to fit it, [and the reg plate], didn't have any flat stock so ended up hacksawing a piece of flat out of some ally angle stock, bending it to shape using the vice on the miller, [i bashed it to shape using my dad's hide mallet, it bounced back and took a chunk out of my knuckle, dangerous spent the rest of the afternoon bitching about the blood covering all the tools], roughed out the bracket out of a section of square stock and hand filed/emery clothed to shape, the rear light is some japper led unit, don't know what bikes it's off but it cost me two-quid from the breakers yard......
