Brief Description: Made ends for seat brace & drilled HB pivot
Turned nuts to fit inside seat cross brace tube, welded washers to it, then welded them both to the tube ends. Used metric threads to keep with the rest of the bike.
Trimmed .625" tube to 3.01" long to be the bushing for the handelbar pivot. Layed out the hole centers on each side of the tube perpendicular to earth in the riding position. Started each hole with a 1/16 drill then opened them up with a step drill to .5" dia while holding the pipe in the vice so drilling straight down would line up the holes. Used 3/8 dia file to get things in align so a .5 dia bar just slides through. Checked and the alignment looks good.
