On my last ride, just before pulling the bike down to get the bracketry plated, the bike developed a bit of a rattle, and the fuel tank seemed to be moving about a bit, especially when full.
I found the aluminum bracket that connects the two tank 'wings' together and centres on the frame broken.
I decided to make a new one out of steel. Better now than in the Simpson. Pity the plating is finished, so I guess I'll just paint it for the time being.
I collect all the racks and bits tomorrow from the zinc platers.
