found em.  They are new, dusty but new.  I imagine w a yank on the caps they could be "customized" for bar end mirrors.
I haven't checked into my options yet. Lemme do that and get back to you, if that's cool? :)

I have been known to wear my welders leather sleeves when I grind. Those sparks can sting! I also like to wear a full-face shield. That way my face does get so dirty. <G>
...every dump I take is original too, and it doesn't smell any better because of it's originality.

I got right down into it. Have a few small holes in my shirt now.

Might be kinda weird but... getting into what I was doing and having sparks fly all around me... was exhilarating. In a hot kinda way. Ha.

Nice to see you digging into the project so quickly. I'll be following along, the bobber idea should be a winner minus the lace paint job  :P

About time you found one to work on. Now try not to wheelie this one (unless you stay on)  ;D I JK I JK

Ok, be open-minded on the lace... don't think grandma's lace doily... think... lingerie. It'll be hot!

I rode yesterday. No wheelies. Stayed on. ;)

I know a guy who caught his shirt on fire.

Using lace or lingerie as a painting mask is an old school technique used by backstreet chopper builders back in the 60's. I have used the technique myself with tremendous success.

nothing wrong with lingerie. I have seen plenty of bob/chop that have looked outstanding with the lace job. Just like to give a hard time.

Pictures or videos of the wheelies or it didn't happen.. LOL
