BMW R80 Cafe Racer, Foot Rest

It's been really difficult to get back to working on the bikes.
I did make a footrest to replace the rubber BMW item. This is made of aluminium, sleeved with thin wall steel for strength and to allow a steel section to locate the retention pin. This is riveted with copper rivets which also provide a bit of grip.
I've only done this side at the moment, later I will slightly tidy the rearset linkage.
I think I'll carry the "aluminium and copper rivet" theme through a few more places, although, I don't want to overdo the rivets.
