As I think about it now and the topology of knots, it may have been the handle bars had been spun around. So I may have spent a little extra time undoing it the more careful way. But even with the two spins around the neck, I also saw it wrapped around at least one other cable. I like to have the largest radius curve possible so I was sure to do that without loosening the cable clamp. Removing the screw to the boss holding down one half with a brake shoe is easy. Some have that thread lock goop, but it comes apart.
I've been real fast at removing the cable this way as you'll see. It is I need to pack my non-road bike (OHV Legal Only) in my truck and so every time I do egress I am taking and swapping handle bars. The ones that are for the motor bike with both brake cables, throttle, & kill switch just stays with bungees attached to the bike tucked out of the way temporarily.
I do this as the other handle bars are ape hangers and are useful for transport so I don't put out a window. It acts as a wedge in place arrangement. For safety I have just the front brake lever and cable on the ape hanger handle bars and use the front brake to assist when it comes down a ramp. 130lbs and with the new Honda pegs and my adapter bracket to make them level and true, I think another 7lbs will be added to that when I'm done.
I also today had a passerby need a patch on a tube. The guy had been walking a long while and a significant other was riding her bike slowly next to him walking. Afterward he gave me 5 bucks. I was going to refuse, but relented
Mostly it took time away from getting the 2nd adapter bracket I was making, but I should have it all finished to go trail riding soon.
Pics of the way I have been getting jigged up (sort of), holding parts at just the right angle before welding all together. A snipped piece of thin sheet metal welded with just a few spots on one half and then position and weld the tab of thin mental on the other half. This thin sheet metal can actually have compound angles bent in it to a small degree and hold in place. Then the edges of the bracket parts almost 1/4 inch thick are also just test small weld.
Check again for alignment and if a go, weld up complete. Otherwise, I'm not too far behind, I break out the die grinder and nudge the thin metal into place. Grinding and flap disk sander on the angle grinder and no one ever knew that the stuff was even there. Power tools!
