In the last episode, I added a saddlebag. Since then I fabricated
a simple quick-release bracket which will be bolted to the saddlebag.
By pulling the lever the whole assembly can be removed rom the
bike in seconds without tools. The bracket was aged to get the
same look as the frame and then protected with linseed oil.
|Originally this bike was owned by my mate Harry
Handgraaf, who sadly passed away. I decided to make a pointcover
in his memory. First a design in CAD, then 3d printed in a mixture
of stainless steel and bronze, then chemically blackened and finally
the highlights polished for contrast.
| Next thing on the list, I want a mini front fender
that can be easily removed. I plan to ride without but can put
it in the saddlebag if I need it. I started by cutting up a stock
front fender but the way things are going I will probably end
up making a whole new one from scratch...
