A bit of work to the Drifter
A little work today that managed to take a stack of time :/
Todays job was to fit heated hand grips (because Im soft). The biggest issue I have with the Oxford Hotgrips for 1″ bars is the god-ugly plastic chrome control box they come with. Its huge and on a cruiser you are very limited as to where to hide it.
I first attempted to pull it to pieces and hide it under the small plate where the idiot lights are. Everything was looking great until I found that once I put the dial binnacle back on, it fouled on the tank
So I’ve done a (bad) patch job on that but will have to order a new one.
Attempt two saw me mount it inside the actual binnacle housing. THIS work.
So now I have heated grips without the fugly control box:
