Today i started on the shifter and brake pedals,
first i cut away as much of the original bracket
as possible and then welded on a new shifter peg.
Martin (the owner) found some cool old pegs
which i sand blasted to dull down the chrome.
I always thought the original Sportster head clamp
was a beautiful piece, even more so after sand blasting
and a little polishing.
When i was a apprentice i was told by a great teacher
that it is human to make mistakes, but it takes
a craftsman to fix it. The top clamp had a large
chunk missing, now no one will ever know.
I LOVE TO RECYCLE!! not bottles and shit,
but ugly aftermarket parts. recognize this seat pan?
a little different after stripping off the fake
leather and some hacking and banging.
