Bobber fast back seat

Here's some pics showing the fast back after a few hours trimming, tweaking and putting the radius edge.
Pretty stoked with the out come, next task is cutting out the seat section.

The fast back seat

Finally started to get serious with the Fast back, months of pondering and visualising can be unleashed using the English Wheel, mallets and tin snips, oh, I forgot to mention masking tape and card board! If your thinking of doing something similar and your a newbie like me, take your time in creating a accurate template and studying where stretching and shrinking needs to happen.
Iam not too sure what order the pics will load but you will see, masking tape template which is transferred to card board then cut out, the template sliced to allow it to go from 3 dimensional to 2D so it lays flat on Aluminium and traced around.
Lots of wheeling and fitting to get the overall shape which Iam fairly happy with, still plenty to do and will post pics once I cut out the seat pan and radius the edge.
