still two days ago, after hitting it with a block of alloy and a hammer.




after much bending and adjusting looks like this.


 the notches are to allow me to bend the tops in 90deg, this was a bad idea as I found out later it distorted the bend so I had to hammer the tops flat and readjust the bends on both mounts.

view from top before I bent the ends in.


side view


im also making a phone/satnav mount bar out of a bent pair of handle bars complete with threaded ends.

still got to tweak the bend on one mount as the screen is touching it, then im going to tac weld some strengtheners in so the mounts cant flex.

worst bit is I came up with a simpler way to give me the adjustment I wanted and use the oem mounts while I was still filling the holes out, once I will finish this I will have a pair of oem mounts to play with
