"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Ahh, nice, didn't see that you had added them to the first post...

How did you fasten them to the bike?

I mounted them here. I bought some longer stainless bolts and made some ( standoffs ) to keep the steel away from the aluminum frame. The original bolts being countersunk is what had me stumped on how to mount them. Once I figuerd that out it went the rest of it went easy.

Very nice. One of these days I'll learn how to weld, and then I'll make my own version of that.

Guess I should have been wearing pants...
