Tool and Oil tank Mounting Bracket
« on: 15.08. 2019 20:55 »
Just wondering,  holding the tool box in my hands why is there two mounting brackets when one would do the job.  After all these years of riding they have never fractured so the design is functional.   
I am sure BSA had a good reason for doing this but is seems overly complicated.

 By the time you are done mounting the oil tank, you will find the tool box mounting is a very uncomplicated design and should be appreciated for its simplicity.  ;)
