    Now your going to have to figure out how to mount it on all you SS's, cause you can't just ride one SS.

    Drill and tap kit is on the way... It's going on the white "Lua" bike... aka, the Prototype.

    Fun huh?! I still think I made off better than G... getting a new SS and all. But it was really fun working with Jen to design something unique and special to put on G's bike. Especially fun was figuring out what to get the guy who has all the bike stuff he needs.

    You did well.

    That's really cool!!
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Finally got the headbadge installed

    Here are some photos...
    1. Headtube
    2. Burr, drill bit and tap used. I had to guesstimate the center of the headtube, and mark the bolt holes. I used the burr to create a starter hole, use the drill bit to go through the headtube and used the tap with a bit of oil to thread the bolt hole
    3. Drilled and tapped headtube
    4 and 5. Headbadge installed.
    The bike now has an official name...

    Looks really sweet Gary! Now maybe this is a dubm question, but wouldn't you just run a tape around the headtube and the center would be 1/2 the diameter at the front?

    I had the headtube diameter, the hard part was finding the leading edge of the headtube... Luckily the eyeball method still kinda works...

    That is sweet. You could've gone the industrial velcro route and had it with you on every ride...
