Default Re: $4 sissy bar

And I'm out of ideas. I thought once I got going it would come to me. Not the case.

I just tried making a seat base from plywood, and before I even mounted it I thought about how much stress it would see under my butt. I flexed the plywood and snapped it in half. OSB is not the answer. Might need some MDF reinforced with steel underneath.

I would like the seat to contour to the tank as well. What I'm trying to avoid is the ridiculous look of a banana seat all high up in the air. I was thinking that some split 2" PVC might do the trick on that, but I don't really think it would turn out right if I had 4 different materials bodged together.

Could use some inspiration.
