As is the case with many things I tend to go a little overboard. But I wanted to have the bike more upright in the shop so its 5x3 1/2 high :shock:
At least its alum and not stainless...:rolleyes:
Might have to make a different one to travel with...

That makes my beer can look cheap and frivolous.

Nice job. :thumbup:

That is too sweet. It looks like it belongs in a trophy case or something. I would be afraid to use it, might get scratched.

Excellent work!

I've been wanting to improve on my piece of 1/2" plywood. I thought I might wrap it with metal duct tape. Your idea humbles me. :bowdown:

Count me in

Love to see the 1800 on one side and my initials on the other: D.M.N.
personalizes it some.

Not sure of material costs or your labor, you should think about your profit margin on top, usually 50% GM. I would pay for a custom piece $19.99 if they didn't scratch. Upwards of $25 is possible. Not beyond.

Nice job- email me if you make more. I will pay-pal ya.

I actually did this one as a lark because I had a drop off of some 5 inch round bar. Pretty handy for the shop, I have made quite a few in the past that you could put in a vest pocket. And the alum does look good...until you use it. Then its down hill from there :banghead:

Humble reader

Geez!!

:agree: That really rocks!!

...and I was using a piece of leftover plank that was cut funny. :bowdown:

+1 if you decide to sell those, only I would need it to be for a 1300... or just a generic VTX would be fine.

Keep up the good work!
