I finally got around to making a sissy bar last week. I started out by bending some 1/2" solid round with a home depot conduit bender
Then ground the angles and fit it into a simple jig I made to get it straight.
My girl Ellie setting the proper angle...
Final welding with my new TIG. I made some bungs for the ends to mount up where the fender bolts go.
I tacked on a simple pad temporarily until I come up with something slicker for the chick to lean against.
