I'm assuming alternate switchgear to facilitate those mirrors??My grandson brought his MK3 over to my place today to do a little maintenance and cleaning, and it looks so pretty that I had to post a picture. This is a project bike that we built together for him back in 2014 in time for us to both have bikes for the INOA rally that year. We've made occasional changes to it since then, and it is still going strong. It lived in my shop until this year, so I could also take it for a spin now and then, but this year he managed to buy his own place, so now it lives in his garage.

Sort of. We used different switch gear to accomodate the aftermarket clutch and brake master cylinders, and used mirrors to fit them. We originally used conventional round mirrors, but the grandson later decided to go with the ones it has now. They don't work nearly as well, and he will probably go back to the conventional mirrors sometime soon. This is a picture of the controls and switchgear before changing to the weird mirrors.I'm assuming alternate switchgear to facilitate those mirrors??
Woo, the aluminum covers look great! Care to share your techniques and materials to get that shine?
While the timing and primary covers off for repairs, I buffed them out on a wheel using progressively finer grade materials. However, final hand polishing with Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish significantly brightened them up. It's good stuff.Woo, the aluminum covers look great!

Hello Nigel. They are the 32's that went on two years ago. Thread below:What size Miks you got on the Vin, and how do they run?
