EUREKA!It came to me suddenly half-way through my eggs & bacon. It's one of those lethal spring clips holding the headlight unit onto the rim!DOH....! I feel a bit silly now. I do remember one flying off when I fitted the tri-bar last summer.....OK folks - move along - nothing to see here - sorry.......
Reminds me of the jokesters who would put a washer and nut under a bike while the owner was away from it.BUT, this incident is a good reminder to get out the tools and check over every possible fixture now and then (better now than then, heh).
One of my buddy's bought a new Sportster and I carried a small squeeze bottle of oil putting a few drops under it every chance I got, it drove him nuts
you're not just saying that are you........ Really though. Thanks.
It looks kind of familiar but I can't think where it might have come from. It may not be from the bike at at
THAT one is TOO easy for a Harley Davis boy ....... I have had about a hundred tea bags festooned all over the BSA at one time ..... Garage guys are rich ..... especially the Harley ones .....
That's funny, I found my old A65 BSA with plastic limes hanging from the tail light ! A certain bunch or morons thought it was high comedy
