    I wanted to build one just before the rubber was delivered;
    i still had a coated round band, and i searched a solution to fix it on the fork...

    I know it´s not the best work but my 1st one ;)

    Good Improvisation...maybe you should leave it this way and make another when the bands arrive!

    Nice job! And you are right, there is plenty of natural forks everywhere, you just have to pick them up and it is free. ;)
