Crash bars look good. As do the indicators! What does the note on the steering damper say? Check oil return, drive on the right,buy milk?
 *bright idea* *good3*

Is that a drink and a chaser, or a cocktail?

Congratulations on finding yourself a nice set of crashguards! They look awesome!

I’ve always liked the idea of crash bars incase of dropping the bike or worsecase having an accident. Once the bike is restored they’re a great investment to protecting your love and joy.

Was lucky to have found original BSA rear crash bars, chrome will have to be redone and will look great.

Still haven’t found any original front crash bars yet. Only came across one on eBay probably back in 2015 and sadly lost through the bidding process.
 
Lucky for me, my wife found a set of NOS Britax front crash guards and gave it for Christmas of 2017.
They don’t look even though and will probably have them cut and welded before having them rechromed to match the rears.

Last year found an original hand rail and has the tabs facing up to be hidden under the seat. Always kept finding the older style with the tabs facing downwards and looks not to good on the bike. At least my wife can grab hold of something if she doesn’t want to hold onto me.
