Renn-Shield

Renn Shield A few years ago I purchased a Renn Shield. I love the workmanship and quality of the product. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50256797936_9ebb2a33a0_h.jpg Unfortunately vibration cracked the plexiglass. I tried to reach Phil Muller for a replacement, but never find him. Latter I read...

Re: Front shock

That is a strange and scary failure. Did you check the left side shock? How do you think the top shock eye stayed in place?

Thank God nothing happened.

Oops, no holes!

Oops, no holes! Since my fenders looked like swiss cheese I plugged/weld all the useless holes. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50203390421_309f555ed7_b.jpg I managed to forget drilling the holes for the chromed fender bow before painting, I only mark them. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50...

I received comments the same day I posted pictures taping before painting the white lines. My choice, I did it for myself.

Front Fender

Now it is the turn for the front fender. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50203127301_1b73a97b03_b.jpg As you can see the diagram calls for M6 screws in the back where fender attaches to the suspension. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50203251131_d7dfdcebd8_b.jpg In my case the holes where pe...

Break light tube and lens.

Break light tube and lens.

Re: Retouch or repaint?

Palica, one more for my "I should have" list? I order color coded wires but receive 12 gauge, too wide to pull thru.
