    I couldn't figure a good place to mount my fuel pump and keep the all the lines as short as possible.

    here are some pictures of the first prototype which I made after work today. Keep in mind this was all made on manual machines. If it works out well I will remake it on the CNC.

    I still need to replace the hardware with stainless cap screws.

    Render images will be put up tomorrow.

    As always I appreciate feedback and thoughts

    Looks pretty cool,

    Feedback: I'd make the rings narrower, and thinner.. Probably dog bone the posts...

    Great idea..

    thanks

    took the width from 3/4 to 5/8 and chopped some of the top off. mine will pretty much stay as is but if i were to produce them i'd go with this style

    Good stuff, if I were building these in a CNC another option would be to make them "round" rather than square, then you'd have less edge, orignally when I commented the main thing I was thinking was weather or not they would be a ankle biter if you laid the bike over.. Probably no big deal,,

    And of course they need a nice orange/black powder coat! :D HMM,, Maybe that fuel pump needs the cover sprayed with a LCB logo.. LOL
