Jan is producing exact copies of the rear carriers from the sample I loaned him. An awful lot of work and fixtures made for these as you can imagine and here is the nearly finished result. Jan might step in with interesting pictures of the process.  Contact Jan direct or PM me for his details. Ron

Thanks to Jan for the work getting these made, and to Ron for helping to get this project underway.

OK, promised Ron to add some pictures of the process… Here we go:

Started by making a detailed drawing of the unfolded part: DSCN9695.thumb.JPG.3222f1c41ee7064c2f0426fdeb1c72b2.JPG

Transferred all the dimensions to a sheet:DSCN9700.thumb.JPG.e167725c0a7c5e472f80de12377e3e6b.JPG 

The smallest radius was only ½”, so made these with a puller: DSCN9702.thumb.JPG.5b7523cf454973765f7db0f0802e6891.JPG

Added the contours, cut them roughly with an angle grinder: DSCN9705.thumb.JPG.5ca65f9c7bfd39634967e8cfb64c5e43.JPG

Followed by a shear:DSCN9706.thumb.JPG.85b824d66a05e6bf6e1ef145278038e8.JPG 

Pressed the handgrip with my hydraulic press: DSCN9756.thumb.JPG.aa54032d5e155550034ce45e4acce335.JPGDSCN9758.thumb.JPG.1d69ab2be33ddc704e12d557aeebcbee.JPG

Closed the handgrip in the vice: DSCN9761.thumb.JPG.1fd6c93b2a075eabd785bff3729bfa9e.JPG

Stretched the inside corners over a stake:DSCN9762.thumb.JPG.a30f4666ee31b84d507f0fe55eca5b5b.JPG DSCN9763.thumb.JPG.b8720f1f213c43692b17f9623f60a205.JPG

Shrunk the outside corners over a stake, bent all the sides and made the two small flanges over a stake: DSCN9767.thumb.JPG.a629ff9048949a987305fc83450691ef.JPGDSCN9769.thumb.JPG.a6e35e389f5dd2c40b1b1af4e7af7085.JPG

Added the corners:DSCN9771.thumb.JPG.0e0964d1faa3ccd67b49f65746626b20.JPG 

Made the legs with a purpose made press tool, after cutting the blanks (rectangles) with a shear:DSCN9752.thumb.JPG.039f846cce04779d07bd66731bb06830.JPG 

Assembled everything on a jig and welded the legs to the carrier: DSCN9774.thumb.JPG.a1fcb5c72960cd5444c14cf744585744.JPG

After some cleaning:DSCN9795.thumb.JPG.d67c3202d49cb7ad18b4002e451e6b1e.JPGDSCN9797.thumb.JPG.0274584bdbb9bc9efbc8a11e1347ff6e.JPG

These are a work of art. They are exactly the same as the original. 

Here it is next to a original!

Very nice work, as usual!  in the meantime I have bought this butchered original, maybe Jan has some reject pieces to make this whole again?

Cheers,

Lex

I doubt that Jan can do anything with that Lex. Drop it at my place on your next visit and I'll use it as a step up. 😏 Ron
