Same here
i gotta a slab of ally, high grade, and some round ally bar
so i made a template, with the mounting holes alooy clearance for pipes etc
used the rear footpeg and hanger off the sportster i still had
i then cut the ally slab out for the mounting brackets drilled holes, and the hole through the ally bar, cut off thread from peg hanger drilled and tapped
then filed sanded and sanded then polished and polished and polished then did some polishing to get mirror finish, thread locked the bolts and bolted in place, i need a link bar to the master cylinder, i had some shiny bar from the up and over garage door i replaced, cut to length threaded and welded other end for the brake peddle and there you go
the gear shift side was hard work though, had to make the gear lever
and link arm and link bar, all the same procidure, cept threading stainless bar for the rose joints, which cost me 7.50
but well worth it in the end

Parts off a garage door?

That's the first time I have ever seen anyone use an old garage door to make bits for their bike.

Good bit of metal that was, 12mm steel bar, it was the slider arms on the runners for the up and over garage door, about a metre long, with 90 deg bends on each end, don`t ever throw things like that away, you never know when you need some, came in great this time
bent it to shape, drilled tapped and welded the fitting for the brake lever
but i had a length of 12mm stainless bar i nicked from work, from a glass shelf shop display system they were throwing out, i had a bit of it, and as i nicked a good few years ago, and made several rear mudguard struts for the chop with it, i didn`t have enough to make both gear shift link rod and brake link rod, so the garage door bar came in great
maybe its just me, but when i see things being chucked at work i think
oooooh i could use that to make this or that and keep it
my garage as all kinds of junk stored for said making of stuff
don`t use some of it for years, but there you go
and if some stuff is chucked, you can garentee you will need it a few weeks later
