Re: Upside down you turn me....

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:


Cut up some old handle bars to make some apes!!!
