I make my own.

I make all my cables. I purchase my British fittings, cables and jackets from Barrett. https://www.barnettclutches.com/control-fitting-assortment.html https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50120180601_78afa815f2_o.jpg Dime Cycle sells BMW fittings. https://www.dimecitycycles.com/motorcycle-parts/motor...

I love it!

I love how easy is to post in the new forum, congratulations.

Is there a way of knowing how many hits the page and forum gets or is getting since the 1st day?

I'm certain the modifications are attracting more visitors.

Almost ready

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50113498926_efafc8c181_o.jpg This is the “fit up” of the hinged back flap and the new stainless steel hardware / domed nut. Notice sintered bronze bushing modified for this purpose. Perhaps my friend Dave can turn something nicer from stainless? Maybe domed nuts ...

Over spray

This is a picture of typical overspray spots of white paint. I will be removing spots today from gas tank and fenders. It is too humid today to clear coat them but they will be ready when a hot dry day comes along.

Light bucket and unlined parts.

Light bucket and unlined parts.

The headlight bucket, taillight housing and tool box lid. Each has three coats clear.

After more wet sanding (after drying for a few days), I will spray three coats of clear on the tank and fenders.
