    That is very cool! Look forward to seeing the end result on the whole bike. I make rusty metal art and experiment a lot with hydrochloric acid, bleach, vinegar etc to create "patina". :)

    Should work ok with a bit more shaping. :) I welded a bolt to a crossbar between the supports and have secured it with wing nuts at the moment. It needs one more bolt half way along to pull it all in line. Just need to get all that paint off so it can rust haha

    So I made some new supports The guard will wrap around nicely after a bit of panelbeating and trimming It should be strong enough like that and not need any more supports, so it will look like it's just hovering in thin air. :)

    Yeh, that front mesh guard has to go. I found a wheelguard from a slightly bigger bike..... Should make for a nice wrap around guard......maybe with some hole drilling it'd look ok... :)

    Yeh thinking about how to incorporate a rear guard in to seat support or sissy bar. Have a few different kinds of mesh and sheet metal stuff to play with as well. :)

    Can I suggest making the saddle bags from perforated sheet metal or mesh of some sort? Or something existing, like deep fryer baskets for example, :)
