How did you bend those bars? Did you use a torch? Looks very cool.
Filled them full of sand, masked off the ends to keep them that way. Then used the vise, a 2" pipe and a 1" pipe, heated about a 4" wide patch (rose bud with oxy/acetylene), and used the 1", to bend the bars around the 2". Slow cool, so less brittle.
Lookin like some color sand and repainting is needed.. dang it.... floabw

I like Corinthian leather, but don't need my paint to be textured like it.
Let that be a lesson kids.
Always cover your work.
Really, just fit all parts before paint... I jumped the gun on the seat tube.
Color sanded smooth and painted up, smooth again.
Cool lightning bolt post and great paint recovery!
I got lucky the paint didnt bubble. It was close..
