    Thanks Chuck.

    Installed a mechanical oil pressure gauge and a Boxer Metal machined OPD.

    ...and I got my 15" wheel back from Woody's. I powder coated one of my 15x3.5" rims and rebuilt and powder coated the hub.

    Built a rear rack/saddlebag mount/vintage cooler holder.

    The cooler fits perfect between the bike and sidecar.

    I'm having fun building something for myself. The joys of being self employed. Never enough time for my stuff.:D
