I don't think 7#'s is too bad, especially when you are enjoying all the light!
A friend of mine and I built a tubing bender rig out of plywood and an idler pulley. I called a tubing outfit in phoenix and they wanted $400.00 to bend the hoop for me, so we did it ourselves. Chrome moly tube is hard to bend. It took all day to get the hoops right.

It is frame mounted.

Helmets arrived

Griff from Combat Flip Flops received our helmets a few days ago. They are almost out of the paint shop. He says the custom paint scheme incredible! I can't wait to see them! Hope I don't fall and get it all scratched up. haha

Can't thank Combat Flip Flops enough for their support of us.
