I have spent the weekend trying to sort out the original dash sockets on Andy's 47. I am going to just replace them. Here is a pic of Miss Brittney/ Bettie Bicycle painting some emblems for me. The tank emblems are for John's 48. She did the ones for Andy's 47 as well.
Bare tank, i have tapped out the 4-40 tank emblem mounting screw in this picture. It is the worst and most intense part of restoring a bike. Imagine turning a tap into a sideways tap with a crescent wrench above a tank that costs a grand to paint. ICK
HEre is a picture of the gasket installed. These are nos, and kind of shrink a little. I had to trim the part that goes under the emblem so that the gasket would go farther ahead.
I could not install the screw because of my gimp left arm, so my dad will have to do it in the morning. Good night guys and happy easter.
