RT-3 headlight brackets

Made some new headlight brackets to change the mount and look of the stock ears. 20ga 316 stainless using only basic hand tools. I started looking online for mounts, then decided they were well within my reach. Simple pinch type fork clamp. Made the ID about 1.5mm smaller than the 34mm tubes so they get serious clamping action. To make them less visible on the fork tube, I buffed them out to a decent shine. Minimal impact here.

You can see my finished tank here as well. Rough yet finished. Old yet new.
