Can anyone suggest a place to order pre-fabricated gussets in various sizes/shapes? I'm looking for stuff to cover basic 90 degree angles and such, nothing too fancy (I'll have to fabricate the fancy stuff). Thanks for any info!

Wow, since I posted this message I have received a lot of good links for gussets like those pictured above. However, $6 for 25 is certainly the best price I've seen for the "holes." Thanks!

Does anyone know where I might also be able to find some more "complete" gussets (like the one-piece bent triangles I occasionally see)? I need little ones, but I also need a couple of the big variety.

Also, I was checking out Summit and jegs on Fleetcare's suggestion and it looks like 99% of the small gussets are the same (some holes and some don't but they're otherwise all about 1.75-2.25" and triangular). Are all of these created equal? Some places have quite a price difference, but they look like the same design.

Thanks again for the info!

Not quite, how about $22 for 100? http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/eek.gif
