    Here is the work I did to secure the upper tips of the sissy bar with SteekStik epoxy putty and a shroud I made from roof flashing.

    No build of mine is complete without at least using one piece of roof flashing or one piece of the spring steel from a foldaway cot.

    The flashing was used for the sissy bar tip shroud and I used a piece of the spring steel to make the trucker tag holder. This really is a fun little doodad.

    Thanks, I've always enjoyed showing off my city with my bike.

    These cobblestone pics are down one of the ramps from Bay Street down to the River Street. Mostly built with old ballast stones from the ships that came to port ages ago.
