| After silver soldering
the joints on the axleplates and straightening the frame all the
joints were ground clean and we could continue on the sissybar.
| We used some thick
rubber tape to get the correct distance between fender and tire,
and after a little massaging with the english wheel the fender
was duck-taped in place
| The sissybar was
made from 12 mm stainless steel which is Aad's speciality. Aad
spent a couple of hours welding grinding and polishing and the
result looked pretty slick!
| As the fender is
not very strong we decided to make the seatbase extra strong,
the seat will be bolted to the sissybar and the fender will just
be mounted to the seat without needing to support any weight.
For the seatbase we started with a piece of 1.5 mm steel that
was shrunk into the correct radius. To be continued.
