aermacchi

i thought i'd better finish off the 'sharkfin' chain and sprocket run protector tonight, to tell you the truth i'd forgotten all about it after making the 'p' clip last week, must be my age i suppose, decided to go with an alloy 'fin instead of the carbon fibre one, it's more in keeping with a classic race bike, just an offcut of dural, shaped up with a hacksaw and file and a trio of holes drilled in it, more for looks than trying to lose any weight off it, with the stainless 'p' clip polished so it's lost against the nickle swingarm and the 'fin just scotchbrited to finish it doesn't look too obtrusive....
