    HA! Actually the Moondisc for the front were defective... Moon is replacing them though, hope to have them in a day or three :D

    I know that! I've drilled many round objects to make valve caps and shifter knobs. Next time take a file and create a flat spot where you want the hole to go then drill it out. Makes it so much easier. :wink:

    Bike is looking great by the way.

    I bought some inexpensive ODI lockdown grips and some leather and went to town. I ground of all the nice new soft rubber grip to get to the solid plastic core. I'll be the first to admit that I have NO idea what I am doing when it comes to leather, but I like to dive in... I'm pleased with the results. The hand carved soapstone skull is also a excellent touch if I do say so myself.

    It aint no brooks but it will do.

    It is a better job than I could do.

    Like the skull dangley, seems a bit of this years theme happening by itself.

    One of the things I like so much a about RRB is the way you all strike ideas off each other and the miriad ways they are expressed.

    Just catching back up with your build. I wish I had your patience.

    The oil tank makes a nice line.

    Very clean and tight looking.

    With a weakness for moon disks plus the way the tank behind seat tube fills and carries theme you certainly do sleek well.
