Nothing special or impressive, but I needed a way to hold my Motofizz tailbag steady and still have room for the girlfriend on the rear seat. It fits great when I'm riding solo, but 2-up it's VERY in the way.

So on my lunch break at work I did a little welding, some riveting and a little work on the shear. Viola! 2 bolts to install/uninstall, weighs only a few ounces and keeps ALL of my passenger room intact.

It's ugly, but it's never seen when it's on the bike



And in use

That's beautiful. I'd like to do stuff like that when i retire. I've seen well-made haunted house doll houses that were interesting along similar lines.

Just finished this for pick-up tomorrow:



78" diameter walnut table supported by four 12" diameter columns.



Whee! It has a leaf and expands to 78" x 98".



Better view of the top. Tung oil w/ varnish solids finish.

Saw this just after you posted the pictures last week.

Guess what popped into my mind while riding and thinking "How can I fix that?" with the GPS? I can do the same by mounting the small Nuvi right to the fuse box cover on the CX with some velcro. I'll post a pic or two on how I did mine shortly....

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

A machine sculpture. You may recognize some of the components. Further explanation for its existence is complicated.

Personally I like it, I fully understand why it exists, no explanation needed.

Luggage rack for Tigger 800 roadie. All seem to be about 100 ukp or more.
So 1 piece of 6 mm Aluminium plate and a meter of bar, about 20 quid with plenty left over for other projects
A few beers for owner of the milling machine (no cost as he would have got them anyway)
An old grit belt for finishing and 10 quid for powder coating...
