Looking for the black bit intact.:praying: This is a real long shot as there can't be a lot of these left. Thanks for looking.
This is from the 80's after market lower air dam.

ok. It is the light bucket for the early 80's air dam. I have both, one was cracked. Had it with me to modify the lights and the piece broke off someplace in the truck I am no longer in. Hopeing to get one intact and save me the effort of remaking the part.

Oh, OK.

Thought I might have one to give you with all the extra 82 1100 plastics I have laying around but I don't see any here.

By air dam, do you mean under or around the radiator? I don't have those type of parts.

You do alright by all of us Chromo! no worries.;) The bits are sitting in someones scrap pile someplace the right person who has them will surface as long as the thread is not forgotten and drift off into the nebula.:praying: And yes you are exactly right it is from the air dam at the bottom of the radiator. I had one re-chromed and now looks quite bare without the lights. It is the story of my life to have then lose bits here and there but I have also helped others and I am certain the tide will ebb again.

CWN,

That picture looks amazingly familiar. Oh yeah, I took it. LOL

Bobalou,

If Right can't find a spare, I'll send you my 2 for shipping and a picture after you reinstall them and get it mounted.

Hey, in the great white north, you never know.

You can see in that picture, someone thought it was a good idea to paint the middle of it. I don't know if it was supposed to be reflective paint, and maybe it was 20 years ago, or if the rest just flaked off the chrome. I do know that I wasn't looking forward to getting that paint off without ruining the chrome. I tried foil but, no luck. Now, I don't have to worry about it, but I'll need to find someone interested in my snowplow.

Yes sir that is the exact nit I am attempting to upgrade. Just got it back from the chrome r. It is mounted now without the lights. Makita has a new flashlight out that has six high power lights in close configuration with reflectors that I think will fit the bucket. Have to measure as I can't afford to purchase with out success.

Snow plow Humm now in my area it might be worth it. not. The newer street bike plastic's are coming forward in shape, which gave me the idea to find a damn worth restoring. The light buckets are kinda wimpy running lights an I am intending on getting some higher out put from them. May change the lens out for clear amber or clear and leave the grills off.
I like the old school look with a current tweak.

I have had good luck with lacquer thinner and allowing it a bit of time to cook the paint. Air craft paint remover has worked as well, hotter then lacquer thinner

Bobalou,

Just shipping and the picture. I don't really care to put in the extra time to get my snowplow in bike shape. I might change my mind later, after I see yours mounted. LOL. At which point, I'll order something to fit, if I have to.

Matt I wish I had pic's of the dam on my ride before re-chroming it. very similar. I don't think the chrome work was good to start on these pieces and I don't think the chrome I had done is all that good either, but it was done for free. I hope it holds up.
