HardRock I roughed them out with a band saw and a 2" wide belt sander with a 36 grit belt. Then I finished shaping them with files. Drilled them on a Bridgeport and I will be using a HD router table with a carbide bit to put the radius on. After that it will be back to files for touch up and then hand polishing them.

Not quite there but better.

They fill the space nicely, let my saddlebags hang better than before Attachment 8554
and will put the turn signals farther back so they won't interfear with the bags.
After I get the turn signals mounted I'll radius the edges a bit and polish them up.
Nice job!
