    Tie Wrap solutions

    I took this picture to show my nice new screws, two of the old ones were stripped.

    Then I noticed the tie wrap in the upper right corner of the picture. And what is that holding? The crash guard. Yes um, a tie wrap helping out the crash guard.
    I've had this bike for 11 years, I never put that on, it's been there for quite a while.

    Guess it's working.

    The allen head sort of went away over time, like 22 years

    The Crash bar fit doesn't look right. You didn't mention if you bought the bike new. If it is an off fit of the bars best case would be whoever put the bars on put the cable tie on as a safety rather than pulling the bolts so tight it dragged the threads out of the block.
