Re: handlebar bag
Written by sax_net on 8/27/2007 at 12:08 pm


I received a glovebox kit from Neil awhile ago, but have to admit it's
still not assembled. Not due to complexity, just time. Anyhow, here's
the response I got from him back in Feb 2006. He was getting out of
making them, but had asked for anyone interested in picking it up...
____________________________
There was a respondent, Sandie Rosenthal, a seamstress in Beltsville,
MD, DreamsSewn@... (AMA #750244, GWRRA #140361, IPCRC #2293) who
implied that she would try her hand at production and she got a kit just
like the one you got. I was planning to let it go at that. You can feel
free to try and make a downloadable drawing, but I guess I'd like to see
Sandie get as many opportunities to sell bags as she can handle. Posting
the patterns would perhaps dilute her potential market. As far as other
pictures, I would think there were some around The Net but I'm not sure
where.
If you want to make some small donation to the Glovebox Maker's
Retirement fund, PayPal to neillnsteph@... would be appreciated
but is not really necessary. I kind of look at the whole project (which
ran for about 6 years) as one of my contributions to the PC800 community
and this is just the last phase of it. I actually feel somewhat relieved
that now I can refer people to Sandie if they want a Glovebox.

PC800: Brake Fluid Replacement
Hi Guys; I'm about to replace the brake fluid in my PC800 and I have a couple questions I hope someone can help me with. Years ago, when changing the fluid on a car, I simply ran some zygon tubing into a jar of fluid, had s

Re: handlebar bag
Are the handlebars on different year pc's different? I have a '95 and the bag sagged pretty badly. As the straps go around the riser portion of the bars, I thought maybe my year had a different taper or something. Any ideas? -Ma

    Hi Gang: While on this subject, I noted two items in recent magazines that are purported to make this job easier and a true one-person operation: The first is a replacement bleed valve that incorporates a ball check valve

    Ted, Thanks for the info. I went to the SpeedBleeder website and it is just as you say, and I intend to get a set. ($13 + shpg). My problem now is that I don't know what the thread size is and the service manual doesn't t

    Mac, Mine sagged too... Oh, wait you are talking about the glove box!<VBG> Yes, my glove box sagged also, but when I put some maps in the top, it took care of it. Cheers, Mark 90 PC800 "Horse With No Name"

      Re: handlebar bag
      One of our riders (Bruce Pickett) gave me the ideal how to fix the sagging bag problem. In the map case insert a piece of stiff plastic that fits it completely. The will help the bag keep it's shape and not sag. It works, and the map pocket i

      Re: handlebar bag
      Will is correct. I cut a piece of clear plexiglass so that it slips into the map pocket and completely fills the space. This stiffens the top of the glovebox, and the ends of the plexiglass rest upon the handlebar covers and prevent the glove

    I remember a while back I was reading and looking at pictures of this Handle bar bag. It strapped between the handlebars over, but just in front of the key hole. Am I dreaming? I can't seem to find anything about it now. What was i

      You're referring to the PC Glovebox. It was made, in years past, by a PC'er in Arizona named Neill Thompson. It's been a while since we've heard from Neill on the list, but you might drop him a note at
