So what do you do when you are desperately trying to finish assembling a bike and you are missing parts? Make them. I was installing the brake calipers on some 99 down HD legs when I found that one of the slider pins was missing. Not only was there not a single shop within 100 miles with the part, it doesn't even show up in HD's microfiche. A chunk of stainless and a socket head screw later, this is what I ended up with. I just have to shorten the threads and I got me some brakes. Thank imaginary people for lathes.
