I've decided I'm going to make another sissy bar, as I'm not 100% satisfied with this one. The initial bend didn't go as planned. Since I didn't have the bar locked down, as it was bent, the bar pulled out, adding another 2 inches of height, and a sharper, less appealing bend. Plus, I dont like the way the bottom bends come together. I want it to be a little more graceful. So this weekend will be take 2.
