Fabricated a front stinger
 
I've been wanting a stinger for a while now, but wasn't into the ones that are already out there, so I made one myself.

This one is just taller than my lights, protects my winch and allows me to 'bump' my off road buddys tire carriers. (tested)

I took 1.5" .120 wall DOM tube and bent it up, and welded it to 3" 3/8th angle. I notched the angle to sit around my welded in D rings and radiused the top inner corners to fit snug next to my winch plate.
I also welded in a piece of solid to hang the winch hook off of.

I used grade 8 1/2-13 hardware to attach it.

I made 4 of these yesterday, 1 for me, 1 for my buddy and have 2 incase we bust, bend or whatever them. may sell them after we've tested these for a while. But so far they've proven to be stronger than my buddys sh!ttybuilt tire carrier. :punk:
Installed.

Spare with primer on it so it doesn't rust. (no mounting holes or D ring notches, Dunno what it's gonna get mounted on so we'll wait till it's needed to do that)

Nice, and you're wearing my favorite green plaid shirt! :) Lemme ask you this, doesn't al the blood run to your shoulders from your hands when you ride like that for a long time? Seems to me it would be a bit of a problem... ;) I've always wondered about that, but never felt comfortable asking...

Ya, your hands go numb after a while, but it's a hard tail (no suspension) and has a small tank, so it can't be ridden long anyhow, 100 miles at a time.

Built after the Captain America chopper that Peter Fonda rode in Easy Rider.
Paucho wishbone hardtail with 37* in the neck, 3* in the trees. 103 cu inch S&S panhead motor mounted to a 6 speed baker trans. king/qween seat, fish tails, Super E S&S Carb, PC controls all the way around.

Fun bike to ride, turns a lot of heads.
