Re: Clearview to Replace Rifle?

Max,
I think that Dan Burrell made some modified heavier and larger top
sections to fit the Rifle base which would be another choice along
with the Clearview. I personally like the Clearview am about to order
one to replace my Honda tall that I cut down 2".

Re: Clearview to Replace Rifle?

Max,

No worries. The Honda and Clearview windshields both mount to the
subframe. You'll need to remove the lower part of the Rifle and
replace it with the new (one piece) windshield.

(Someone else will chime in if there is an issue with the mounting
screws and collars being diffent. Right? IIRC, Clearview supplies a
new set of screws, but not collars.)

Bra

Don't know if the membership at large is interested, but I have a
sewing department at my place and we could probably recreate this if
you are interested. I would need one to use as a pattern -- age and
condition not important.
Any interest?

OK,OK already.........I'm the guy who paid the exhorbitant (I admit
it) amount for the bra on e-bay. I MAY have cursed myself by posting
a message earlier this month about "bra"s in general, and got many
responses about how many of you would buy one if I started making
them with my dad's old industrial.
I do know that it would have cost me over $300 for new parts at the
internet parts house to replace the faded parts, or $285 at the local
paint shop. This bra covers up all the fading, and looks good to boot.
What is disconcerting to me is that I had to go that high to get it.
I went $2.50 higher than the last bidder. I didn't expect it to go
that high, but when I weighed the alternatives, it still made sense
for my situation + now I have instructions for installation if I DO
decide to make them. It seems there is still a market.
I just read that one of the members is contemplating having his wife
manufacture them for enthusiasts. Good idea...I wish I had thought of
it.

Believe me, i was tempted also to go really high. I figured it
would go for about $200.00. Considering i'm in Hawaii, even if I
found any retailer out there with a cobweb ridden nib bra, it would
cost me loads in shipping. Congrats to you. If you wait a couple
years you could unload it for more. :-)

Does anyone remember what they were new? Somewhere around $100-$120 I
think. Just goes to show what a feeding freinzy looks like on eBay for
something not made anymore. I want one, but not that bad. Congrats to
the winning bidder. They have one and I don't. Maybe I'll catch a break
on one down the road...maybe.
If memory serves me right I got mine from Honda for about 65 bucks.

None if it is the original horn. Turn the wheel all the way and hold your
tongue "just right". There is a bolt at the top of the mount that holds it on
and a couple slip on connectors. At this point some have purchased both a high
and low horn and mounted them there. Some use additional relays, some don't.
And some of us have even gone further and replaced the horn with a set
of dual air-horns. You have to use a relay with these babys for sure.

Clock to match Honda Marine Volt Meter

Jim Mortensen
 

I recently installed the Honda Marine volt meter (mentioned previously
on this site) in the left speaker panel. I bought it from Chris Hoopes
who decided to go with the Kurykan LED meter instead. Thanks Chris.

It was an easy install, and I think it looks great. Now I'd like to
install a matching lighted clock in the right speaker panel. Does
anyone know if there's a matching Honda Marine clock? How about an
ST1100 clock - I've read that it has a clock, but I haven't seen any
good pictures of it.

The clock on the right speaker panel of this bike in the Photos
section looks to be a good match.

b=3&m=s&o=0

If anyone has any suggestions for matching the Honda Marine volt meter
(see http://www.st1100.org/farkles/hondavolt.html), please let me know.

I don't know about that, but a GL1800 bra is only 69 dollars and change from
