Driver Footbox Stuff
And here is the answer to the clearance problem. I decided to make some “bubbles” to clear the valve cover and rear cylinder header tube. This is the first time I’ve made a part like this. I used .040″ 6061-T6, which I annealed before forming, along with some plastic mallets and a sand “beater bag”. I flush rivited the bubbles to the footbox with flat head aircraft rivets and polished it. Looks great! The last picture shows the ouboard “rail” that I milled. This will be used to make a removable footbox top, to get access to the brake/clutch master cylinders for service.
