I work on these metric things as well! :lol:


Fixing a buddy's fender strut mount bolts on his (new to him) 2002 VTX 1800. Prev owner had a 8mm bolt and nut, through the 10mm hole and welded (to fender) nut. I had to re-tap the threads to clean em up. Then I picked up some nice stainless steel bolts for it.

Easy peasy.

Yeah had neighbor Nick's SG further up the driveway... we pulled his exhaust and wrapped it. Looks killer.

Chris you just need to hire a couple mechanics and open up a shop like "The Shop". Then I think you would be happy.
