Or a cool gas cap for all of the cowl gas tanks. May actually be easy to do, just take the gas cap and drill a hole and then bolt the eye through the hole.

Working my way up to bigger stuff.
And of course, everything takes longer than expected.

Pewter is kinda heavy for shift knobs,
but hood ornaments should be OK.
Casting bolts in place is no problem now.

I've got a couple hood ornaments planned,
also Points Covers for V-Twins.

Going to be at Autorama in Grand Rapids MI next weekend.

One problem with larger pieces, the molds get bigger
and the parts are heavier, so the price has to go up.

If hood ornaments arent a problem, what about the gas cap for the cowl gas tank?


And price wouldnt be a problem if its what ppl really want. Especially when its custom hand made stuff.

Making something to bolt to a cowl gas cap is not a problem.

Pewter is very soft, so cast threads for a screw on cap probably
wouldn't last very long.
