    I did this to protect the cones and domes of my living room speakers. Very thin brass or copper wire would look smashing as a taillight grille. Lots of precise drilling, counting, and weaving...

    COUNTING................................. you just lost me.

    But seriously that is something I didn't think of.

    And any artistic idea is on the table,

    as far from the every day stuff as possible.

    Thinking some hand stitching.

    Haven't decided where or material to use.

    Belt on tanks been done to death.

    Really liked the tassels on Dad's Harley.

    and some of the do-dads on the leather.

    I'm trying to get the hang of Flickr Links.

    Like better than P Bucket I used link

    didn't see a bunch of adds and clutter.

    Seems to be working,, 4 pix of the GL500I

    I don't plan on fairing lower pieces.

    That leaves the radiator ugliness.

    showing,so I cut up a Standard

    shroud to try to keep a finished look.

    Wish the fairing was smaller.

    Have several including the baby

    size Darth Vader lookin Quicksilver.

    Cant see any good way to trim

    the Honda Line down without

    makin it a fork mount .

    cleaned up the calipers.

    Pistons look new no leaks.

    2 of the caliper slider seals

    got fork oil or ??? on them

    and semi liquefied never seen

    them sold separately anyone

    got some they didn't use ?

    cant see buyin a kit for $30

    for 2 boots.

    Background are box's

    7-8 ft.high 25 ft long 3-4 ft wide.

    Ridiculous,,, wife's keepsakes

    and clothes,an more clothes.

    Need my own space if it can't

    fit in the rafters or house

    ByeBye garage hello Food

    Bank Donatiion box.

    you can buy the seals individually from any honda dealer i think these are the ones you mean

    from this diagram

    Honda Motorcycle Parts 1982 GL500 A FRONT BRAKE CALIPER Diagram


    13
    BOOT B

    45133-MA3-006


    $3.86


    14
    BOOT, PIN

    45133-166-016


    $2.74

    i buy seals and boots all by quantity then use what i need

    since so many bikes use the same part they may even have them in stock
