Found a really cool spot for my fire extinguisher to mount on the bike.



Looks like I can hook to the 1/4 20 bolt that holds the top of the license plate. And use the V shaped steel stabilizer piece to prevent rotation.



Cut off 6 7/8 of 2 inch aluminum stock in the break.



Onto the Bridgeport mill for some slots and holes



Paint it up and mount it up.....





I will run it some miles this weekend and let you all know.

I got them from Amazon.com

I have some, I will apply it, dampening material is always helpful!

It has that on the other side....

Of all the stuff I have on/for my bike, I don't think I ever thought of a fire ext. I just had to push the "LIKE" button on this post. I think I'll have one mounted under my Tour Pak rack before long. Thanks

"A two wheeled panty remover" with a fire extinguisher ?
Yeah. Friction causes heat. Heat causes fire. Dry humping and grinding is the leading cause of passenger seat wear on a Harley.

It's simple science, really.

Back in the late 80's I had a Sportster catch on fire ..... a fire extinguisher would have been handy. I was riding to work, the metal battery hold down strap contacted both terminals and heated the strap orange hot, it melted the top of the battery until it caught on fire........I pulled over and put the fire out using sand that collects on the side of the road. It made a mess.......the battery lasted for two more years, a little deformed and with a no-slip finish.

I was going to say, I never heard of a bike catching on fire. I'm sure it's happened though.

I did hear of a law suit against Harley a few years ago because the newer, hotter running engines had actually cause someone's pants to catch fire at a stoplight in a hot state.
