Workshop Wednesday #6: CB500 Triple Clamps

Workshop Wednesday #6 was a cold one so I only did some stuff in the morning. These Honda CB500 triple clamps were on my XLH900 but they didn't work at all with the HD headset so I totally rebuild the upper plate to make it work with the Timken Style Sealed Bearing headset so I never will have problems again with a loose headset. Shaved the upper Aluminium plate and will shave the lower Steel plate later when I know if everything fits. These are a little bit wider than the HD Sportster bridges but same 35mm diameter. Sandblasted them to check for cracks but will be powdercoated after the test rides in 2011, too cold now hahahahaha.
