depending on what type of fender you are using, and the amount of money you want to spend, flyrite makes a nice one. also wcc and there is a cc member who makes internal supports for the fender that supports it and no struts on the outside. there was a thread, passengers on a cfl i think it was there were lots of pics and ideas on that thread look for it.

This is a piece of 2" x 1/4 strap steel from Lowes...heated and bent around a jig that was cut from a piece of 2x12. It would support Rosanne Barr... though the spikes would have to go...

Here are some flat plate ones on a bike of mine.
They are 1/8" plate bent to fit and drilled for looks by me. They have held a passenger on a few trips.

i made mine out of round bar from lowes/home depot

can get 3 or 4 foot lengths for like 5 bucks each. grab a torch or bend em old skool style with your hands. voila - easy and cheap. i also got some 3/4 round bar and drilled/tapped it for 5/16 threads and cut up into 1 or 2 inch long bungs. then drill through 1 side of the bung and you can weld the ends of the sissy bar in and then use a bolt to make the whole thing removable. just put a bolt through the hole on the axle plate into the bung.

on the latest build i just welded the sissy bar direct to the frame. yea i know it makes removal more difficult but how many times do you remove the sissy bar for reasons other than cos the thing needs to be scrapped anyway.

anyone have an idea about how thick i'd have to have a support if it was made of aluminum? thinking about having it flat bar powdercoated black and then drilling holes in it for contrast.

i would use 1/4" or 3/8" alluminum depending on how wide you are going. Plus if you are drilling holes for contrast the thicker material would look cool.
