Back to the "Shrine"

I have a little room off the back of my garage where I do some of the work on the bikes. It's lovingly called the "Shrine".

Because it's a Shrine, there are signs of reverence. Like this one after entering....




When one enters hallowed halls, one must tread lightly.


Having obtained the proper tools, it was time to make a template of the DR's luggage rack so appropriate cuts could be made to the top box plate.





I'm no Michelangelo as you can see.




And ultimately, mounted it looks like this...



I'm too embarassed to show you the plate. It was pretty butchered by the time I was done, but the top box was on and it was on good.

Oh yeah, so was the windshield.

Ultimately, Kim's DR looked like this with a few more tidbits to go...



The big test will be when Kim gets on it and passes preliminary judgement. Stay tuned.
