Choprocker Looks good to me.

That's known as the "Redtigger mount" which he came
up with several years back as well.

You might like to spring for chrome allens and acorn
nuts like he did. Here's a link to his thread: LINKY

Sweet that gives me ideas. Between this and the other mount post I think I have a plan. Now if I could just pick up my Sporty from Frieze I would be in there. Have to write this stuff down before it leaves my brain and I forget. lol thanks for the info on how you did it.

If you have an "ACE" hardware in you are good to go. They have everything in my area. Even in Chrome!

Xena, you saved from a world of pain. Thanks very much.
If only I'd seen this as week earlier some things wouldn't have met the grinder. XL forum rules.

Brilliant Xena
I've only just joined this group, and boy am I glad I did.
I'm doing some work on my '91 Sportster and this is one of the problems I have been trying to resolve.... Hey Presto I find your mod :-)
Could I ask do the bolts need a nut underneath ??
Regards
Mark
