Yes, smashing job. Anyone want to start banging them out at a reasonable cost for forum members?

+1 on that!! Mike is pulling in a few £s on his spacers for LEDs, would be great if this was also an option for peeps!

Looking good, I've a stuck with the stock bracket but put a few coats of satin black paint (No Nonsense anti corrosive  satin black from screwfix £4.99)  on  the bracket and bolts so they match the bars better. I'm looking at painting the hex bolts on the rest of the handle bar too, I'm not keen on an all satin black handlebar with 4 bright silver bolts look, to me they spoil the look.

I felt the same about the bright silver bolts so swapped quite a few for the black stainless ones from carbolts1, see link below. He is very helpful, if you don't see the size you want, ask and he probably has some.

Did you buy the metal plate at that size? or cut to size yourself?

I see, thanks. I think you posted the dimensions in an earlier post already actually  :002:
Now to find a local shop who can cut a plate to size, not much of a workshop in my apartment unfortunately :008:

Sorry Mark, not set up for sheet metal work, only round bits and bobs made in the lathe.  :027:

 :431: I wasn't insinuating you should/could provide them Mike, I was using you as an example of someone with skills in case he could supply them...

I've ordered a 100x100 2mm sheet from ebay for £3.50 and will ask the guys in our machine shop to cut it to size for me, meaning I'll have 2, so I'll have a spare one up for someone to use once I get it done if anyone wants it :028:  :031:
