Cool, thanks. I scored a nice pair of Custom Chrome 39mm fork clamps used for $21 shipped. There sure are a lot of cheap aluminum chinese clamps out there. Not on my bike.

I don't like them up on the bars, it was one of the first things I noticed, along with the big awkward crash bars and forward mounted floor boards.

I bought the small bullet TS units from later models and installed them on the lower triple tree:

Your picture looks like it was taken in Auburn IL. I used to fish at a covered bridge like that back home.

I'm glad it brought back memories - but it is the 'Ramp Covered Bridge' near Newburg, PA.

That pic is also in my 'Miscellaneous Places - 2020' Ride Reports at My Motorcycle Chronicles, along with a number of other covered bridges here in PA.
