  • Never would have guessed the tie rod was hollow. Bent back fine in the vise on the work bench. Thought it was solid metal. Then again, how would a solid steel/aluminum rod bend from such a short fall. Thanks for the input.
  • I ratchet around the channels and the seat. And I put some pressure on it too. Had both brakes on as well. Next time I take it anywhere a will have wood chocks in the channel held in place with screws, and the ratchet going left and right of the cen…
  • I’m sitting here trying to figure out how it came off. And all I can figure is it and the strap slid to the right off the trays as I turned left. It landed on right side. Left wheel spins fine. Right bracket that the caliper mounts to its bent. Rear…
  • Would love to try one for our African Grey parrot, Kamaiha. I don’t think he’d survive the trip. Too much movement, activity going by. He likes the security of his cage. Now if he sat in a pet carrier that was lashed to my rack, he’d be closer to…
  • To replace that foto next to your TCEd. (I’m just jerking your KMC chain Ed.)
  • A new portrait of your low rider will be needed then. Photoshop it. Get the orange wrinkles out if warranted.

  • I’ll have one rack in da Fjord to tease you with, all aluminum.
  • Here it is. Am going to raise the mirror some more with a hose clamp as not to wear out the band for the light. This is the Fred Meijer Berry Junction Trail, just nordth of Muskegon. ( look in the trees for those gorillas escaped from Barnum Bai…
  • I’ll let you know. The mirror post is held by the light strap. Quick fix. I’ll watch that as well to see how long it will hold. Wanted a detachable system. My Trike is outside on a carrier. Hers is inside her Windstar. I could put a long piece of …
  • I love to create things. Mine is already on my Rover. Hope to try it out this afternoon.
  • Hose clamps x2 and whallah? (sp) I want to ride tomorrow and Vicki will be working so I needed a quick fix
  • If I bend it at all to go inside handlebar, I’ll lose the height.
  • Right now I have a flexible, gooseneck shaft that has my headlight and mirror attached. Just thinking of a way to mount it to handlebar tightly. Hose clamp perhaps?
  • Pipe is aluminum. Hey, I have some carbon fiber of a sail mast/boom for the yak I don’t use much anymore. Hmm..
  • About 10”. Cut the pipe so that the thin bolt would reach. Running several ideas thru the computer now on how to keep the location the same.
