that looks very badass.... only thing that kinda sticks out to me is the big bent section of tube that looks like its coming from the top of the bag on the right there.... it may just be the lighting... but it almost looks like its kinda bent up a little, like aside from the long sweeping bend. i dunno if its just a shadow on it or what but i just thought i would point it out in case there is an issue there... but regardless awesome work man! i like it

I was going to ask him what kind of bender he used. The problem with the pipe bender is that pipe is measured by the id and tube is od so the dies are diffrent causing a kink. The bow and arrow benders will still kink pipe but will do more so with tubing. Other than that looks nice. You could possibly skim it with some filler to smooth out the bumps because they will show up 10 times worse with paint or chrome.


I don't see any upper bars were did you hide them?:eek:

Nice work

See what the problem is is that there be only 2 lower bars on a 2 link and bending tube with a cigeratte lighter and a 15lbs. sledge hammer is bound to leave a couple three dents in the tube we got them looking pretty darn close though. But that nothing that a little cardboard, fiberglass, JB weld, and bondo cant fix. Think I got all the bases covered????

Welds? I used a soldering iron and some plumbers paste. Not bad for some shadetree fabrications in a friends garage.

Whats the matter can't take any constructive criticism. I was just trying to explain to you why the tubing may have kinked like it did and gave you a solution to cover the kinks in it. I was also wondering what the reasoning was to build all of that and not add 2 more bars for a four link. I was complementing your welds.

And also did you see the nice work at the end of the post? Why do you have to be a smart azz about it?
