I started by disassembling the driveline, then I cut the piece for my cupholder from the driveline by cutting the tube 6 inches above the yoke end weld and cutting off the majority of the yoke below the weld. I ground down the yoke side to roughly 1/4 inch from the weld, sanded the weld smooth, drew a design pattern, and drilled many holes in the tube according to the design to make the cupholder lighter and more ornate. After drilling holes for the mounting bolts I bolted it to the bike frame.
