Headlamp grill

Post by Steve59 » Fri Dec 21, 2018 9:48 am

Noticed a photo of an MT in Gary`s workshop with a headlamp grill.
Were these a factory produced item or is someone making them to order out there ?

There must have been a few made by some one as ive seen a few that all look the same..

Send Pirate a PM he may want to sell the one on the bike we are refurbishing for him.. He wants it as it was in the Army and as they were not an Army or factory fitted item he may want to sell it...

My brother made about 2 dozen which were sold to Mt owners but this was at least 12 years ago.
Like me the names of these guys do not appear on here very often.

Not one but two of your party attendees made racks ! Also, another member, who has now sold his MT, made his own, I note his comments about the bike weaving especially when loaded. Prior to that an ex moderator made at least one
