Seems to be a moot point.
    Thoughts ?
    Obviously the proper seating of the flare has to take place and be straight on and stress free as possible .
    That's what I was thinking. Especially on such a short distance between 2 points that are so solidly connected like this. I know it's been said they're crap, but for what it's worth the V-Twin buckets use copper lines.

    Haha! I posted that just to see what your response would be. You did not disappoint, lol.

    I'm not having any luck finding the bronze line, but I got some steel so I'll try my hand with that.

    Played a little bit last night to see what frame tabs might be missing. Will need to add brackets for the seat and seat springs. Maybe something for the oil tank as well, I'm not sure how that's supposed to mount. The only mounting point I see for it right now is the two bolts at the bottom front of the tank.

    Thanks. I'll look through the boxes this weekend and see if I have that bracket. I did see the holes in the fender where something was bolted up.

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure I did see that bracket in one of the boxes a while back. I'll dig through them tomorrow and see if I can find it!

    I definitely remember my dad having this seat on the bike for a couple years, but how he had it mounted is a mystery to me right now. There IS what I thought at first glance was the front seat bracket pivot point on the same bracket as the fuel tanks and the upper motor mount bolt to, but it's well too far forward and too narrow for the bracket that's on the seat. Also, there are no attachment points on the frame for the seat springs.

    It's no problem for me to add them, but it's just puzzling me how he had it mounted before.

    Unless maybe he redneck engineered a seat post T bar to mount this seat bracket to, without the actual seat post, which I wouldn't put past him, lol.
