clever bracketry...

You know how on the Norton Commando the horn is buried deep behind the gearbox cradle? It's not exactly the most easily accessible area on the bike and by now, 40 years after they rolled off the factory floor, chances are the original horn is no longer working well, if at all.
Smaller, Japanese horns as found on countless scooters and bikes are an excellent replacement, but the question often is "where do I mount that?". How about this then, a 'U' shaped bracket that goes around the coils support and a straight bracket to hold the horn right below the coils. Easy to access, unobtrusive and plenty loud. Neat!

All credit to Vito (not to be confused with Witold) who is dad's main mechanic and one heck of a guy : )
