PostSubject: Home made Flag & Pole   Sun Apr 07, 2013 6:03 pm

Decided to have a go at making a flag from 2 of the suzuki800.com patches and a bit of metal from the shed. I cut short piece of of metal and bent a 90 degree angel in it so that I could bolt it to the rear seat mount & then the flat bit of the pole would be facing the right way. I sewed 2 of the patches together and left a slot for the pole to go inside it. I drilled 3 little holes in the pole so that I could also stitch the flag through the pole to help secure it.

I don't know mate, it only takes a second to fit or detach so maybe just for trips.

Dave this is a bit off track but I gotta say firstly the flag looks great but also that your bike is looking really good with the cleaned up rear fender mod and the matt black sprayed parts on the bike

I am pleased with how the little flag turned out, just the perfect size to have on the bike for any events or meet ups. The good thing is that as it attaches to the rear seat bolt it only takes a minute to put on or take off. So yes Sim I will be flying the flag for sure when we do the "Normandy Tribute Tour" for sure.
Crash yes I am very pleased with the resprayed black parts and rear end, much cleaner now.

Dave I have to agree with the others. That is a great looking bike. I like the way you fixed the rear fender. Looks neat and well planned.

My bike only has 2 throttle positions, fully open or fully closed. Nothing quite like the sound of a bike sucking every last drop of oxygen it can get under full bore. Love it. Twisted Evil

I'm scared to think what you'd be like on the road if you had Rocket III.
The asphalt would be folding under your wheels.
