    Sorry, but I don't quite grasp your pun.

    More Merkur madness... this time I built a harness bar.
    (Pardon the terrible photos, I spend all my loot on car parts, rather than a fancy DSLR.)

    [​IMG]
    I drew up the mounting plates and tabs in CAD and had them cut on the local steel shop's CNC plasma table. I fueled my narcissism by including a "CD" logo on each side. :norton

    [​IMG]
    After measuring carefully and drilling a couple of mounting holes, the plates were bolted in place on the B-pillars.

    1.25" .120-wall DOM tubing

    Not pictured are the threaded bungs, which slip into each end and get welded in place. I used this same tubing for the downtubes, despite it being way overkill.

    It mounts to the OEM seatbelt fasteners and uses Schroth Rallye 4 ASM harnesses, which are DOT-approved.

    I like Hormel Chili better than Naleys, good road food...now available in Canada.:clap

    +1 on the stagg- family favorite. My 9 yr old figured out his own "recipe"- he takes one can of stagg and adds another can of beans or two and maybe a few other canned things (corn, mushrooms, whatever), heats it up and viola. Hey, at least I didn't have to cook it!

    I've been fine tuning my own chili for 25 years or so and it is my favorite, however that Stagg chili is as good as any that comes out of a can. Pour it over some rice with fresh chopped onions and some grated cheese.

    Brackets that do this are sold on the interwebs for $50+; I think this cost 2 hours labor and <$4 in parts.

    Hey some of the best Chili I've had is at small Rallies where everyone brings a can of some chili, stew and/or? it all gets mixed together in a big pot - Biker Chili.
    The music starts in the Tent later on.........:eek1:wink:

    Whipped up this sterling silver fork bracelet for mom for Christmas. It's a little marred up from bending it but still came out pretty decent I think. Hopefully she doesnt read ADV! :lol3
