    Very nice ride. BTW, I laughed when I read your subject line. A "silver bullet" in my profession is a aluminum wrapped rectal suppository.

    My bike is like your bike all chromed out. check it out. I was wondering how do you get the custom grips to fit over the gas control?

    HAH... nice idea, even tho I don't prefer light beer myself. Coors Original is a much nicer beer.

    That's excellent.
    How much does all of that chrome cost?
    Can plastic be chromed?

    I don't remember where I got these but the accellerator is incorporated into the grip.

    Yes, but it's a different process than metal. I didn't chrome anything on the bike, that would be very costly and not worth the expense.

    Those mirrors are absolute Junk Jemma. Found them on Amazon, $40 I think. all plastic, they don't stay in adjustment in the wind or from road vibration.

    You mentioned foil...I did come up with a clever idea on the motor mount. I took a rubber hooked tie down strap and cut four pieces up about 3" long, took some fiberglassed reinforced aluminum tape normally used for ductwork and laid then 2 wide and 2 high and wrapped them up. I then wedged it between the plate I made up and the bike frame and it worked out great. The rubber seemed the right consistency to absorb vibration with out being sloppy, too hard a rubber will transmit vibration. Another rubber you could use is the rubber connectors used for PVC drain pipe found at Ace Hardware but it more expensive. On the seat post all I used was thick double sided sticky tape, I doubt it helped relieve any vibration but it saves the chrome from being scratched up.

    I see you did the clutch cable modification. Mine hasn't been bad at all, I put a shot of oil in the cable housing and blew it in there with some compressed air, hopefully it'll keep working smoothly. Hey...I'll tell ya, it sure gets some looks, can't pickup any women with it though, no place to put

    HAHAHAHAHA... "Yes, hop on this here trailer, m'lady... and I will take you to get an ice cream cone." No chance in **** a female would continue listening to you after you say 'hop on'.

    You guys are right, tho... this is the worst part of MBs! =-( I need a transformer MB that turns into a limo with a chauffeur.

    Hey Jo and Mo lol, did those bikes come with the 68 spokes? Do the bolts
    line up with that many. It dosent seem like the math and angles work out.
    Obviously it worked out somehow.
