Indian Larry Sissy Bar for a Beach Cruiser.


Step 3: The stays

To make the stays I flatten to strips of aluminium rail and drilled and shaped the ends, to bend the right angles i held the strip in the jaws of a 3" vice and once in the right position i used a small hammer to bend the aluminium, use very light taps as the aluminium bends very easy and is also marked very easily too.

I pop riveted the bottom stay on first and then bid some final tweaking of the top curve before i marked out the holes for the top stay.

Once the bottom stay was in place I as able to mark where to cut the sissy bar to length and where to drill the hole in the mudguard.
