My slow moving XL chopper build and things that I dig...

I guess I could have bought pipes like these or had someone make them. But I decided to save some cash and make some myself! I need to finish the welds and get these plated or coated. Also looking into some tips for the ends.
Picked up this old sissy bar last week. It had a crooked fender mount on it and a another crooked piece of flatbar 4 inches below the one I left on there. I cut off the pieces I didn't need. Going to smooth things out with some file and flapper wheel work. I'm going to use some bungs to mount it to the rear axle plates and fender. New plating and it will be good to go.
I picked up this cool old Sporty fender. Probably off an Ironhead. Anyway, I got to cutting with my Jigsaw and it looks pretty good already. Going to pound out a couple dings, fill in some holes, mount it up and paint it. Not bad!
