A friend of mine had a nice 57. I rode with him to a cruise night deal. We're on the way home, got on the freeway and got in the HOV lane. Riding along about 75 mph next to the K wall, there's this awful rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat noise. I didn't hear it earlier, I guess it was louder because it was echoing off the K wall. Turns out he had no anti-rattle clips and no rubber bushings on his caliper bolts, because they didn't provide any with his disc brake conversion when they sent it. So he just put it together without. He had been occasionally hearing the noise and wondered about it. But the brakes worked fine. Getting all those small parts in place fixed it right up.
