    Re: Upside down you turn me....

    I have wanted to do a couple of builds with a 12" front, but when I go to do the mock-up it just seems too small, might be because those builds have had too big a rear tire though...

    Cut out the seat shape on a bit of ply wood,soaked in water for a few days.

    Made the seat clamp holder from a square bit of metal,similar to what Luke uses for his spokes... :wink:

    Sanded and shaped:

    Next is to sponge and cover the seat:

    Found this at the Gypsy camp,thought it would be useful as a sissy bar:
