Here’s another item that’s pretty tough to find – replacement pop top hinges for a 71 Westy. Besides, I would probably just bend and break them like I did the originals anyway.
Any time I’ve tried bending them back into shape, they would be just bend out of shape again within a few days. And, now they are cracking too.
So, I made my own. Stronger. Left-handed.
One of the tricks here is to add about 1/2″ of bend at the end of each bar – it’s required to make sure the top sits properly when down. An easy way to do this is hold the bar in a vise long-ways just pull real hard.
