Made a sissy bar out of 1/2 square 304 stainless rod. Hand bent it cold, drilled and tapped holes to screw it together since I don't have any welding equipment, and then surface grinded - sanded it down from 24 grit all the way to 2000 and then Mother's metal polishing compound, metal polish, and wax. Used existing HD mounts from a catalog sissy bar. It is sturdy and stiff but not necessarily indestructible. Time will tell if the screws vibrate loose or whatever.

I'll bet there's some hours in that. Nice to see something that's put together a little differently.
