z-bar -devil's horn

If you put the name "Draku" to your bike, (my friend George's ride), some devil horns are in order.
Working with high quality material, 22 mm pipe with 3,3 mm wall in thickness; excellent composition. It behaved perfectly while welding and bending. it was a pleasure to work on this handlebar... together!







not a big fan of polishing so I handed over the task to my "right hand man", to complete the job.







After that,  from a front fender we made three useful things. Front fender, rear fender and third... surprise!
They were'n my ideas, the handle bar and the fender. I just made them​; the fender was just cut off.
  
A bit sad because it was only for one day... or two.
But everything came out beautiful!

Gusset plates at the top of the bars, for a higher resistance.

LAPTOP, KINDEL, SAMSUNG GALAXY LEATHEAR BAG-ALL IN ONE

Far more complex, demanding, and that most beautiful handbag I've done until today (after, BAG wife)
drawer for a laptop with flap and magnetic closureKindle holster, holster for Samsung Galaxy 2, fatty front pocket open, zippered pocket on lid 10x12 cm, a huge pocket for papers, across the entire rear of bags with zipper and flap closure... front of bags, cover and shoulder strap are doubled, glued, stuffed to the press, after which they are sewn, obviously... hand sewn, hand stitching... anything mechanical.
Buckle flap closure is "false" and closing with magnetic studs, buckle which can still adjust the damper closed, but if you want to open bag quickly... click! and is open. Enjoy the picture. Because I DO.

































Ceea mai COMPLEXĂ, SOLICITANTĂ ŞI CEA MAI FRUMOASĂ GEANTĂ DIN CÂTE AM EXECUTAT PÂNĂ AZI (după geanta soției)
Sertar pentru LAPTOP cu clapetă şi închidere magnetică
Toc pentru  KINDEL, toc pentru Samsung Galaxy 2, un buzunar deschis dolofan frontal, buzunar de 10x12 cm cu fermoar pe capac, un imens buzunar pentru acte, pe toată suprafaţa părții din spatele genţii, închiderea se face cu fermoar şi clapetă... partea din faţă a genţii, capacul şi cureaua de umăr sunt dublate, lipite, după care au fost date la presă, cusute, evident, de mână. Nimic mecanic.
Închiderea clapetei cu catarame "false", care se face prin capse magnetice, cataramele pot regla închiderea clapetei, atunci când se doreşte să se deschidă geanta repede, click! Şi e deschisă.
