Photo Request, rear mechanical brake/oil tank mount plate

#1

Post by imboden » Tue Aug 19, 2008 7:52 pm

Trying to bolt some pieces back together, and low and behold I can't find these specifics in my books...

I'm trying to remember exactly how the rear brake pedal spring attaches? Which does the front clevis pin hold to? I thought maybe somebody could snap me a shot?

I'm also trying to remember exactly how the oil tank base plate attaches. I know the two front bolts on the seat post, but what about the rear?

thanks very much, Pat

Oil tank base will attach to the fender.

There should be a bracket that bolts to the tank plate and the other part of the bracket is curved to match the fender conture.
