It looks like you were rewelding or replacing the lower fat bob mount. I've got the same frame and that bracket is cut in half. Any source for the brackets?

That's a fairly intricate piece, do you know who made it? I've never seen one of those before, or never really noticed.
Made by H-D and sold as a factory accessory from '46 to the mid '50s. There is an adapter piece for cat-eye dashes. All '47 up dash bases are set up to accept it. If you look at the center stud you will see the hollow center with a reverse cut spiral thread. That is what the outer cable housing threads into. The bracket is sandwiched between the carb and air cleaner back. One of the hardest pieces to find is the choke shaft for the carb as it is completely different than the one for under tank choke!
It just never became popular and was dropped as an accessory!

Well there it is, I learned something before coffee. That's why I like it here. Thanks for the info.

Rubone, thanks for adding the last piece of the puzzle. The choke shaft is what I'm missing, and up to this point I didn't realize that there was a special one for this application.

Dinuns, keep up the good work! I've got a special place in my heart for the '48 to '54 FL and EL's.

Regards,
Geo.
