SELF INTRODUCTION: I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi.

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Best, Bob Davidson

You might provide a general location they would ship from. I think it's a good deal too, but not something I'm interested in.
Too many projects now.
Good luck.

Do you have the spring plate too?
And what material did you use?

Also where would it ship from?

For those that check this out, this is one inch more narrow than Gary's plans.

All parts are made from Mild Steel. (1018, A36)

Ships from ST. Louis, MO. I think I can ship it US Postal Flat Rate Box. Probably cost about $25.
