Homemade Stainless steel mirror finish lowers 3 Years, 7 Months ago
Just finished. .05 ss (mirror finish, nickel plated acorn nuts on the outside...Hope you like them...I do. It's been in the 50's here...time to get some of that cold air off of me. If they work out well I'll send the crash bar clamps out for chrome plating and make them match (zinc plated for now). I'm not really a "chrome" kinda guy but these sure are the largest pieces of shiny stuff that I have ever had on a bike. Built them on the fly in the garage with standard tools most everyone has...so no "how to" progress pics.

Pictures are sometimes deceiving. It actually curves in to towards the bottom and middle of the bike to follow the contour of the crash bar. The crash bars are built to allow for the turning radius of the back of the front fender. .05 gause is about the thickest you can use and still be able to pull it in by hand and get the acorn nuts on to hold the form.
Thanks for looking.
