Fire & Steel Puzzle

Got down to business yesterday fitting the Fab Kevin fender strut kit on the Walsh bike. It had been awhile since I'd done some good steel bending with my little Home Depot MAPP gas/Oxy torch, but with the right amount of planning and measuring it came out perfectly. It doesn't hurt being the greatest bike builder alive today either. Check it out:
Making the first bend, an old 39mm fork tube makes a nice leverage multiplier for this type of work.
Second bend done, strut trimmed to length and fitted.
