If you used the 15/16 spikes for the fork caps and you have some extras, this is a good way to use them up. The frame looks very cool with these.

I have been using Liquid Nails silicon adhesive. It's pretty harmless if you want to remove it and seems to hold pretty good. When I put them on the frame I used about a 2 inch wood plug I made from some scrap. With an inch in the frame pipe and one in the spike, it's solid. Generous amount of silicon in and between both and you are good.

I used the same silicon on the fork caps and they just go right on.

Lastly, I painted one black and used it to do the key mod. One black spike in between the two chrome ones looks good. Can't get a photo of that in here with the iPhone, but you can see it in my library if you're interested.

I'll get a closer pic up here soon. The cap is almost the same diameter as the pipe frame, so it just butts up to the pipe. That's why I put something inside both of them to make the connection stronger. I used a wood plug in case I wanted to remove it later for some reason, but there are probably lots of things you could use inside the two pieces like Quik Steel or something.

I got it from B in Bang's original posting way back when. I used a DupliColor Low Gloss Black (DE1634) Engine Enamel. They carry it at Pep Boys and Advance Auto if either of those are close to you.

OK what are you guys using to attach these? I've tried twice now. First time with GOOP and after 24hrs it was still gooey and would not stick. Second time with clear silicone and left it for 48 hours and its still gooey and would not hold!

My guess is since it forms a tight seal, no air can get in to cure the GOOP/silicone so it doesn't harden.

I use Liquid Nails clear silicon for everything and haven't had any problems. Of course with the frame end project, I also put a wood plug in to make everything solid.
