nice looking bits of metal, are they ebay ? do you have a link to them

i'm going to need something similar for the CB750 when it gets trailbiked and has gaiters fitted along with the twin disc CB900 front end
short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

I originally was going to use these flat wire clips, but their diameter is too small and would leave about a 3/4" gap in the ring when installed and the end would dig into the rubber gaiter.  The round wire clips are made for the Triumph so diameter is correct, yet still have plenty of room to open when squeezed.





Link to round wire one, 4 for $20:

The flat wire ones are for a Royal Enfield fork. My pair is available cheap if you can use them.

Gaiter clips showed up and fit the brake line perfectly. unfortunately the whole front end will need to come apart to install them.

Phuck Photobucket.
Right after my last post I moved my powder coating operation to Ocala, Fla. for 5 months. Big mistake, after aggressively pounding that territory with advertising and hitting every car show, cruise in, bike shows, etc. of which there are many, after 5 months I had averaged $169/month. Couldn't even cover the expense of letting my Ga. house sit empty. Never got to a point where I could consider renting a home down there. During my last month there my Dad passed away at the same time Mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and hasn't been given much time past Christmas. After coming back home I am literally starting over here at home with my PC operation. So I basically blew the whole year. I've added a spray chrome process to my line. Anyways it's time to get back to finishing the build. Here is where it currently stands and just needs the last 100 little tidbits done to complete the build. Should have it ready for spring riding.
