Bending Up an Oval Sissybar

Ben's bending up a new stainless bar. This time for himself for his pan project! What's unique with this bar is it's actually oval. Oval solid stainless was difficult, if not impossible to find. So Ben took it upon himself to shape a piece of square stock. First milling the corners off a few feet at a time, then shaping the rest by hand. More photos to come later... @bengottheinsta59fl 📷 cred @nick_fortuna #stainlesssteel #sissybars #retrofitcycleworksvia Instagram

Chopping Up a Primary Cover

So what do you do when Paughco no longer makes electric start diamond primary covers for '85 FXWGs anymore? The diaphragm clutch is too wide for the standard shovelhead cover. So you get creative and take a cheap Tedd's cover and another crusty after market cover and you widen it! The difference is about a half inch. Sadly, once all finished you'll never know it was widened and all the work that went into it. It'll be totally worth it though. The ol man's evo is coming along nicely. #retrofitcycleworks #retrofitting #mammynun #evo #choppervia Instagram
