blowing up my pant leg. It was a simple project. I took a piece of cardboard,
and held it up to the spot, figured out how I wanted it to go, and tore off

leather gloves, and a ton of patience, I was able to bend it to the shape I
wanted. and fit it to the bike. I found the best thing to do was to get the
bends close, then re-heat bend and put it on the bike, this allowed it to cool
