Just the plain ol' roll of chrome car door stripping that they sell at AutoZone. I had some left over after doing the metal lip on my gas tank.Windburn Bill said:

It's home made. It's 1/8" aluminum. I knew a guy with some scrap pieces. Luckily he had the machine to bend it too. He just randomly bent the piece to show me how it worked. His random bend was perfect for what I needed. Then I drew the lines where it needed to be cut so that it looked custom and cut it out with my jigsaw. Drilled the holes and then sanded all the edges so that they were smooth and then painted it. For the bolt, I had an extra one from the saddlebags, so I cut it down to size and used it. To mount it to the bike I just added it on to the bolt for my Cobra bars. I'm quite happy how it turned out.rushbass said:Interesting mount for the Stebel - I like it! Where did you get that bracket?
It's been on for a year now, and I haven't had any issues. I guess the air flow keeps it from getting hot. It barely gets warm. There's at least 1/4" between them.Redzdvl said:you haven't had any problems with it being so close to the exhaust pipe?
Cool ... good to know ~ been thinking about getting a second one for that side & it will probably be close. 8)Air4ceOne said:
