Strebel Horn Mount

I had read about how others had mounted their strebels. I thought I would share what I came up with. I just created a rectangular bracket using a strip of metal that I heated and bent. Then connected the ends using JBWeld. Used the screws holding the ABS stuff onto the shelf located on the left of the bike. I also mounted the horn relay in this area, and the fuse panel relay on the shelf.

Sano install.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

I had some kind of an L bracket laying around that I bent, drilled and tortured with waterboarding.

Just a quick follow-up. The JBWeld joint ended up not holding very well. I took the frame to a local welding shop and he welded it together in about 2 minutes. Other than that, I am very pleased with the results.
