Rear Rack Rubber Bumpers--where to source?

[img=533x348]http://www.citlink.net/~tkb/rearrackrubber.jpg[/img]

Any one know where to obtain the three rubber bumper inserts that install into the holes in the /2 rear rack as seen in the photo above from the 2013 Quail Gathering in Carmel CA this last month?

Thanks

Tandy

Bluemoon bulbs

I see that the Bluemoonscooter eBay post now states that bulbs are 12V.

Are you pleased with the overall quality of the ss bar-end signals? Does the stub fit into the 18mm handlebar hole properly, the cheap chrome one that a friend gave have stubs that are too large, around 20mm diameter?

My favorite slinger

Below, Joel Rapose's handsome hand holds a slinger (back side/crank view) freshly removed from my 1966 R69S with 35,000 miles. The machine was recovered from a shipping container in the weeds south of Sacramento, California. The bike looked unharmed, but its history was unknown. That, and the mileag...

I've read the Barrington manual from cover to cover.

Perhaps I can help here I was one who received an advanced copy of the Barrington manual. I offered to review the manual when I pre-ordered the book. I have done some technical writing and recently edited an aviation book for a friend, and was prepared to scan the Barrington manual for the usual pre...
