Step 1: Metal Cutting Time

This section requires patience to cut good metal pieces !

Step 2: Assembly of Metal Pieces

In all cases, tack welding must be required to join together metal pieces.

Step 3: Welding Time

For fine steel thickness, I advise you to weld with stainless steel sticks. This technique allows assembling two parts of fine steel thickness without passing through steel pieces.

- welding intensity = 30 - 35 A

Step 4: Rack Assembly and Installation

  1. - Make holes in the aluminum bars and fix them with bolts. You need to take some measures of your handlebars to adjust the length of the aluminum bars.
  2. - Fold the aluminum bars around the handlebars and fix it with two bolts.
