Thanks guys, I do a lot of fab work so this project was actually quite simple.I work in a shop that I have access to about any bit of equipment I need.
First I cut everything out in cardboard to get the design I liked, then I took all my dimensions and drew it all up in a CAD program, I then cut it out of 1/8 steel on a waterjet, then used a CNC brake to make all the bends the way I wanted, mounted the sides to the bike and mate drilled the holes to mount the top plate to the sides. I sprayed rubberized undercoating on it but I'm not sure I like it, I will likely blast it off and powder coat it satin black (which I already have)for more durability.
I actually have 2 different size top pcs drawn up on CAD so the top shelf comes off easily with the 8 bolts. I can also easily alter the cutouts to any design I want incase I ever want to change it up to some fancy flame work or anything. In all the cardboard template setup is what took me the longest to work out what I liked, actual production, cutting, bending, etc took maybe an hour with setting everything up.
Hunt......My pipes were chrome when I bought it and had to do something about that, since I plan to buy different pipes in the future I didn't hesitate to scuff up them up with sandpaper and coat them with a couple cans of black BBQ pit rattle can paint, I'm pleased with how they turned out
