I've made a die to press the ends of the front fender stays.
It is milled from a piece of solid steel and made specifically for 8mm (alloy) tube to be pressed flat like Honda used to do, with a rounded edge and pressed to one side.
The first test:
You can see some irregularities and a nick from the end of the die, so I made some changes by hand, I was happy by the third test:
And the stays as they should be put together:
I want to put it all together in the weekend as I want to take my time for this. I don't want to rush it in the hour after work that I spend in the workshop.
