We are finally catching a break from the triple digit temps and I was up early enough to make it a play-day, so I dusted off the oh-12 and rolled it out to the driveway. First up was remounting the painted fenders, I still need to wire the lighting so everything is finger-tightened for now...just to get the parts off the shelves and onto the bike to make room for more parts later, A.K.A. "conservation of space".
After that I remounted the seats (also finger-tight for obvious reasons) and got to work on some other parts I'd acquired over the years. A set of aux. lamps and a not-to-spec windshield went on up front. I haven't connect the lamps yet as I need to get LED bulbs for them to reduce draw on the charging system, that and I was intentionally blowing off that rat's nest under the plastic cover/behind the headlight as that's always so much fun to put back together.
I was going to wrap it up with a set of hard bags but I am lacking scrap metal to fabricate mounting hardware, so that will have to wait for another play-day for now.
I will have to relocate the front directionals to the light bar as well.
Those bags are going to look good perched over the muffler extensions.
I also replaced the broken reflector piece behind the plate light
I suppose this finally & officially makes me part of the Black Rebels Motorcycle Club now (if you haven't seen the Wild One you owe it to yourself, especially if you proclaim yourself to be a fan of bobbers...either way you'll see what bobbers really are and enjoy a good flick at the same time
