https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Custom-Classic-Cafe-Racer-Seat-Hoop-Frame-Loop-LED-Brake-Turn-Singal-Light-Lamp-/222881931071?hash=item33e4cc5f3f


Can someone tell me how to make a loop like the one above if you can with a pipe bender. I want to make it out of the same pipe that is used to make the trike frames with. The pipe i have is 1'' across from outside edge to outside edge which will match my bike frame. Or can someone do it for me. I need my loop to measure 10.1/4 or new money 260 mm from outside edge to outside edge.

Try your friendly local exhaust fabricator or fabrication shop

Answer to Steve's question,  it is for a seat but all so for other reasons
Answer to Paul's question , we don't have an exhaust fabricator

Hi Merv
Did you get the frame loop made?

I'm thinking about doing something similar with my bike

Remember folks, the example Merv linked to with inbuilt indicators/brake light do not conform to lighting regs, so are no good for anything going through MSVA.
