I cut 4 pieces to length, and bent 4 sweeping 90°s at the ends of each piece. I cut the pipe somewhere in the middle of the bend that matched my template turning my bends into 30°s or so. Useing the grinder to shape the ends so it'll fit together.

For the flanges, driilled a hole in the tubes where it needs to bolt up. Next i stacked three washers and ran a blot through the pipe and washers. welded stacked washers inside, then flatened it with a press, cleaned up the ends with some additional welds and grinding, this made it solid.

On top, Steel plate welded to the top traced by the outline. Finnally while letting the seat rest ontop i adjusted the supports up and down until i liked the angle of the seat, then spot welded it in place

Cerakote to match, graphite with a touch of armor black

VIDEO
https://youtu.be/X_sryKkNckI

Here's a vid I took a couple months back. Several things are not done yet in the video, I see the chain is not on etc. I don't think I even had the carbs synced yet, but it runs.
