Solo flight to Tail of the Dragon and Asheville NC
Its on Saturday morning! I will be back when the spirits are gone.
I have been working in the shop getting the bike together for the past week. I made a windscreen to keep the bugs out of my teeth when i’m grinning down the the dragon.
I used an old helmet visor from the 70s and some aluminum stock from ACE hardware.
I also built panniers out of vintage Italian military bags and mounted a 3/8 aluminum rod from the rear foot rest mount to the fender to keep the bags out of the wheels and shocks.
Here’s a look at the bagger.
While I was at it I made a belt buckle out of a thrashed generator cover from a 354.
