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.

And a bobber style...
Personally, I would hang the light down from the bracket instead of sticking it up in the air.

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

Have one made to fit the shape of the down tubes and out of the bigger oval tube they use in race cars ....with a custom filler at the top and a cap from BE Cool. Use a little shaped alunimum on the sides and bottom and it would look good !
