Murphy's law caught up to me.
I'm blowing 1157 bulbs in my tail light, and a bit later in my brake light (it's dual filament)
I checked the voltages, and they're good, but I'm getting nearly 12A readings on the two wires that go to the fixture. That's gotta be the problem. Now, I don't know...
Won this heavy duty aluminum beauty from 7-metal-west.
Forgive the cocked angle on the second shot. I've just got it propped up a bit on some foam.
I'm thinking of moving it forward a bit so it doesn't stick out quite so far.
I tried it with the solo seat I have on there now and didn't care...
Anyone who has seen my bike knows I've got a really half-assed license plate mount. I'm gonna try and make something fully-assed.

Fucking circlip. Trying to rebuild my master cylinder and I can't get the old plunger out because the only snap ring pliers I have can't reach it. I'm going to end up buying $30 pliers for a $30 part. A whole new master cylinder was only $85.
I don't know if you guys have seen this. It's 2 guys riding old Honda's across the states. I've watched all the available episodes, and it's pretty good stuff. They post new episodes on Wednesdays and the pre-trip wrenching stuff on Fridays.
Also, they get a thumbs up for some good music, as...
Getting the rear hoop together finally. I'm thinking about doing a bratstyle seat, preferably tuck-n-roll. I'd have to ditch the mini-fender, though.
Any opinions? Is my girl just too fat for those sleek seats?
We moved into our house over 6 years ago. I'm finally getting around to cleaning out and setting up the garage. I had cleared space for my bike, but that was about it. So yesterday I went on a rampage of throwing out things we obviously never needed.
I had snagged some counter top for free...
