Myog anything cage

Post by evilgoat » Sat May 16, 2020 2:05 pm

Fancied getting an anything cage for occasional use but put off by the price. A bit of rooting round the garage and found some 8 mm aluminium tube and 6 mm plate. A couple of happy hours with a pipe bender, hacksaw, file and drill and I've got this. Solid and perfect for a tarp on my stooge fork.

good work! if you can, try a counter sink bit and then use counter sink bolts. I suspect the bolt heads will rub through your bag in time....

Cheers.

I didn't have any stainless counter sunk bolts but that will be a good idea. I suspect round heads would be better than square heads.
