A smalll issue I had with my 1974 Ironhead was that the front caliper is the ugliest piece of shit I' ever seen. With all of my money on this project going to more important details and realizing that my caliper is aluminum I decided to grind it down with a course grinder disk and file all the casting marks off. Then I polished it. I even took the time to grind of the "lip" around the obnoxious metal HD sticker. Hopefully this will help others out. Take a look.... By the way, I would like to round the outer edge of the face and maybe even file in some VERY SHALLOW fins. If anybody has done something similar to this with these particular calipers please post pics or at least tell me how much thickness I have to work with here. Thanks.
