Pull off the bracket and weld it up



Then I've been meaning to weld a new stop in for USD forks, needed more then ever now so they don't whack the tower.



The tower in place,





The new cad design



Next the light mounts then the fairing.
Paul, you never cease to amaze me with your work, just when I thought i had the ultimate "highway dirt bikes" setup I stumble upon this thread...

Don't stop innovating, your work is brilliant!

Quick question on your bracket that you welded. I see that it is 2 pieces. Would it be easier to use a 1 piece bracket that has the same radius of curvature on the back as the headtube of the frame to make alligning easier?
