This is a clock I made a while back from a Classic 70's Norton Commando engine side cover .
Step 1Find a Classic 70's Motorcycle side cover
I still own, and ride, my two Classic British motorcycles, a restored 1967 Triumph Trophy 650, and a 1972 Norton Commando Interstate 750. I loved them back in the 60's and promised myself I would someday ride and own at least one. Well I did just that.
I would go to swop meets and buy spares parts. One day I found some engine side covers for cheap. So I cleaned them up and found a clock that almost fit the timing point socket on the right side.
Step 2Get a clock that fits in the timing point hole
I was lucky to find a small battery clock that almost fit in the timing point hole. All I needed was to fill the space around the clock so it was snug. Leatherwork is one of my hobbies, so I cut out a ring of black leather to fit.
Step 3Make a bracket to hang it
I made a bracket of flat aluminum stock to hang it. I drilled some holes in the middle to attach it to a wall hook.
Step 4Put some nice stainless bolts on the outside
I wanted some nice border bolts to glitz it up. I found some nice staainless steel hex head ones at Homeydepo. Put the gasket around the clock, put in a fresh AAA battery, place it in the hole, hang it and enjoy!
Step 5I made one from a Triumph too!
Since I love 60's Triumphs too I also made one of those. I'm recycling metal and making art too. Wow, who would have guessed? Enjoy, time waits for no man (or woman)!
