Old Number 16
Well as with any new bike there are the little things. After taking Old number 16 for a quick ride I realized that the headlight mount would vibrate at a certian RPM. I just couldn't live with it so a new mount had to be made....
I found a chunk of flat plate 1" aluminium. I had a thought and a plan so I just started whittling away....
Mill and cut and move it and mill some more...finally it was taking shape...
All that was left now was to drill some mounting holes and then give it to Rick to sand and polish
And Ta Da............headlight mount...if its good emoung for Mick...its good enough for me.....ha ha.
Thanks Rick...I hate polishing....
