    Search "clip ons" on ebay, all kinds of them pop up. You just need to know what size you need in mm's.

    You can use areo bars, a lot of double crown forks use 31.8 legs so get a cheap used areo bar whack the ends off done

    I made clip-ons out of stems for The Bishop back in my first BBO. Stole the idea from Bean.

    I've been working at cleaning up my frame.

    [​IMG]First I gave it a bath!


    [​IMG]

    I came across this chainguard, it's off a B.F. Goodrich. It must be from a different year because the green is a little different. If I go with a chainguard, I'm going to use it anyways!

    [​IMG]

    I used rubbing compound on it and even wet sanded it in some areas with 1000 grit sandpaper.

    [​IMG]

    After that I shot it with this Rust Fix stuff. All the rust is supposed to turn to black primer. It kinda worked! This left it with a shiny surface, when it stops raining, I'm going to spray it with clear satin.

    I've had these horn tank halves before I had the frame. So I was excided that I had them when I picked up the frame. I'm going to polish them the best I can and then spray then with some clear. Not sure what is the best clear coat in a raddle can for bare metal.

    Tank looks good! Will clear stick over polish?

    I was doing some test fitting on my fork this evening.
    The motorcycle clip-ons fit really good.
    [​IMG]

    I have an idea on how I can use these bars!
    [​IMG]

    I found some headlight mounts that fit the forks better.
    [​IMG]
    The fork tubes are 1 1/2" dia.

    I also found a headlight speedo combo that I think is the prefect size.

    I hope to find a good working vintage light generator w/ front and rear lights that I can wire to this headlight.
