    re a cb125

    The outer tubes are just for dress right? Almost like covers that can be removed without any mechanical issues and thereby reducing the diameter of the tubes between the trees to that below the trees?

    no offense but if you are having to ask these kinds of questions then maybe you would be doing your self a favor by buying an inexpensive set of clipons.

    but if you are reffering to the headlight ears asn the "outer tubes" then yes.

    it is simple device a clamp with a bar on it YES! Thats the obvious when you look at them.then you have to have the material with safe thickness (wall) and the proper diameter mm for the fork tubes they are being bolted to.Then a 7/8 in diameter tube whetehr it be welded to the clamp ,made adjusted to the clap or clap to the clap are more design questions.then at what angle for ergonomics so you dont slip off the ends or lean on the to much or hit the tank.

    So what seems like a very very simple part can turn into alot of work.Buy a set. Unless your going into the 175cc cafe clipon business .
    Good luck anyway you dicide,remember crashing sometimes hurts ALOT!

    Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

    measure your fork diameter and then strat trolling foreign ebay sites, chances are you'll find a set for a 50cc screamer they have in europe that they don't have here.

    I made a set of clip-on ape handers once but I cheated. I bought a press in bar clamp and then used an old set of ape hangers, cut them in half, trimmed them and pressed them into the bar clamps. Looked cool.

    anyway, unless you are dead set on this project, and are confident enough a welder (and you have to be good enough to get structural penetration) you can probably buy them cheaper than you can make them. Champ sells smaller ones for $40 or so and I doubt you could get a pair of hommade ones chromed for that.
