GL1200 Rear Engine Brackets Fill

by

I’m going to be using the space inside the triangle rear engine brackets to hold my ignition key switch.  I welded some 18 gauge sheet metal to the back side of the bracket to fill in the space.  I’ll drill out the hole for the switch and then powder coat the brackets.  It’s a small detail but I think it’s small details like this that add up to make a project stand out a little.  I’m trying to keep the look of the bike as clean as possible which entails only adding additional brackets and such only when needed.

Here’s a picture of the brackets after sandblasting and sheet metal backing welded in place.
