Kid on the bike - DIY Tutorial - update - making an harness - ep 15p3 eng - Roma Custom Bike
This is an update on the "Kid on the bike"series where Custom Cez makes a diy harness for the little D-Dog.
the other 2 episodes where Custom Cez builds a foot peg and a heat shield using his CNC machine.
In this 2 part episode Custom Cez creates all necessary parts to safely bring his 4 years old child on the bike, needless to say in private roads only.
PART ONE - MAKING THE FOOT PEG WITH THE CNC MACHINE
He starts with the design and machining of the support bracket trying to follow the lines of the housing of the air filter. The goal is to create a system that can disappear under the carburetor when not in use but that can be put in place quickly when necessary. That is why Custom Cez chooses to use a butterfly nut to secure the support to the bike so that it can be loosened without having to use any tools.
To make the actual peg he uses a piece of chrome tubing and a threaded bar to make the piece the least bit noticeable and at the same time cool and functional, in line with the rest of the bike.
Custom Cez will also test the polishing kit from www.lux-metal.com Check out the results in this episode!

- machining of support bracket with the CNC machine
