"Fence post" hubcap for sidecar wheel?

Postby Swordsman » Tue Jul 02, 2013 12:24 am

I remember reading a post here on SS quite some time back about someone making a pop-on hubcap for the sidecar wheel out of a chain link fence post cap. Well, my plastic one and I finally parted ways somewhere down the road (it had been busted and glued by the original owner), so I'm in need of a replacement. As luck would have it, I CANNOT find that post again. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Emerald Almonds. Good to eat too.

I cut the bottom off of the container and it is a perfect fit. So perfect that when you push it over the hub you can hear the air whoosh out. I painted mine black. It lasted for over a year.

Lowered my cholesterol too... :wink:

I like the cinnamon better.

The plastic cans make great parts cleaners for small gun parts!

WWID a tuna can has been used in the past. If I remember they wrapped some duct tape around the dust cover t make it big enough to hold the tune can on.

Can of tuna. Now that sounds like a great item in the spare parts kit. Dual purpose, If you get hungry or if you need a hubcap you've got it covered :lol:

That's what my buddy did with his 650 Patrol. Couldn't keep the cats away after that.

I think if I ever need a replacement, I'll spend the $8 for a new one.
