Running boards. Next will be straight pipes!
ADV bikes 'R' Us.
It was such a pretty day that I did a little garage sweeping / rearranging.
It gave me a good excuse to play with everyone's motorcycle!
Who doesn't love looking at motorcycles? I mean, really?
It was a good day. I got some work done, met some new people, and got to play with motorcycles! Life is good!
F800GS racks fully welded and tabs dressed up with a 60 grit flapwheel.
Everything reassembled to check for warpage.
I really like how those top tabs turned out.
You need to add a GSA to that lineup. . ..
I'd love to one day!
So many motorcycles - so little time!

Looks good, I cringe every time I see critical mounting points like that made by just hammering the tube flat.

Racks ready to go!
Looks great Kirk! Painted or Powder?
Rustoleum Industrial gloss enamel. Pretty tough stuff and easy to touch-up.
I used the same paint on my original KLR racks from almost 3 years ago and it still looks very good with zero touch-ups.
I thought it must be that considering the speed of your powder coater!
Looks great though, and is probably plenty tough enough.
Looks great Kirk!
