    Maybe it's just a drain plug.

    Well I decided to change the front master cylinder to a less modern look and has place to mount mirror.
    I went with the HHB 13mm master cylinder.
    I have to drill and tap the mirror mount to 10mm.

    I also decided to change the mirrors from the stock to Maltese cross mirrors.

    that mirror sure looks sweet. I like the grips as well . There's some really nice touches on your bike that don't really show up on pics of the whole bike.

    Why are we not nominating your build for the calendar anyway ? :shrug:
    I couldn't find your build thread when I looked the other day.

    if its still happening and we are still within the deadline I would really like to nominate your bike for the calendar :thumbsup:

    Thanks Bro! very cool of you Man.
    I'm have a good time doing some of the little things now that she is running again.
    I do find myself staring at her a little more than I should thinking of stuff I want to do.
