    That part I have to still see about. The machinst is a good guy and knows I can only do so much because lack of tools. I know it is his living, so I tip the differnce in what I was willing to pay compared to what he ask's me to pay him.

    Plus he is a biker and likes what I am doing and getting into it a bit, but we will see about these brackets.

    only reason i asked is i can make them probably be $125-150 which is why i said those were good prices on the others

    So I did not make it out to the shop last weeek, nothing let me leave the house, but I did get out to them yesterday. I swapped some smaller plate for a larger piece, they will water jet cut the brackets out of this larger piece. The idea is to just make one solid piece first, than finish it out. I do have to cover the cost of the cutting out, near 50.00. I really do appreciate the offer stacebg, but he really liked the ideas and wanted to do one for me. Love the shops wth all the tools and machinary, like a kid in a candy store.

    Wow, I seen those and other clamp on brackets, but just now I was slapped upside the head and I see how one could have adapted such a clamp to work for what I wanted.

    Where the handle bar rod goes, a shorter piece long enough to have the risers attached to it and it would have worked, but I think I will be pleased with what gets made for me.

    Thank you everyone, just wish I was looking more outside the box, LOL

    So I hope all are doing okay with all that is happening in the world today. Some places seem to still move a bit more than others. I did get my shock fork mounts back from the machinist the other day. I have been working on getting the roughness sanded out. Like the cut of the water jet, but when rushed a bit it leaves marks, but I was 1 1/4" thick material. Turns out my design is what they went with.

    I have gotten out of shape over this last year. Healing of the shoulder seems to have damaged my endurance level.

    I am not sure how I finished all the other peices, my arms get tired way to fast and the work is slow going. I have one ready for 320 grit, and started the other one yesterday. It is pitted bad, and will take some time unless I power sand the pits out. I am not sure about this, but was thinking to work the 320 grit until I get a shine with it, no vissible lines, than hit the buffer machine. If I start with rough black compound and work my way up the chart I hope I can get a nice finish to them. My finder supports need to be finished out also, yes some work a head of me.

    Hope all can keep bizzy and maintain their sanity as we all deal with this new virus issue. Keep safe everyone....

    A good morning to everyone, hope all are safe and doing well. I have still been at the rough sanding stage. I just wanted to get some pitting out of the face cuts and try to smooth out the sides some. Still at it, almost getting ready to move up in sandpaper grade. I have to work it up to the 400 gritt, from this point on I should be able to use the buffing wheels to finish them out. Keep safe everyone.

    Wow, thought this virus thing would give me time in the garage to work on things, I was wrong.

    Family issues came up and turned my home upside down for a bit, now some legal crap, so all is still waiting for me to do my part so it can be put back together again. This is August, not good, was suppose to be on the road this month, wow.

    Be safe and enjoy your ride.
