Hi,

Bike is way cool. I am extremely pleased!

Currently working on the hubs. Just want to clean and grease the moving parts and ride it. (And move the light) :cool:

Would like to get the light bracket and a new rubber bushing for the springer.

I believe that it mounts to the bracket that fits to the fork like this:

So the light mounts like this:

Bushing clearly needs to be replaced.

Will post more photos in the Huffman Serial Number Thread.
Thanks.

Wondering what people use for replacement bushings...
Guess I could pull something off an old car part and reshape it.

Still need the light bracket as well.

Thanks.

I've actually went to the hardware dept. in Lowe's where they have specialty parts for the rubber bushings.

A Huffman "Gliding Ride" light bracket would be killer.
Thanks!

Pretty sure it looks like this one. Might have two holes like on fork perch.
