Default How to do it ?

How to do this exactly. How you do it. I need to bend the fender and this shape will be in front. Harley?
Somebody showed a bead roller without a shaft. Was the machine have extended by the wheels towards the material and driven directly by the chain?

One way can be...
2/3 mm laser cut steel to shapes, bend them round to suit shape use male and female clamp them together and press them in over something round, drill a few holes to keep them in place then weld holes up.

Another way...
Would be to block with small blocking hammer the tops lines then with a hammer and dolly square top lines, use a small dolly on the bottom of the top line and with chasers and a proper dolly drop the lower line down
I used the same method to make all the lines on the Monaro quarter

Thank you Peter. I'm not going to be so good with a mallet. I would be able to mold a mold.
That's just one form. I have the idea to shape according to the drawn line. Flexible as needed.
I need to decorate the Harley fender. On some fiber I saw a bead roller without shafts. It's been a long time ago.
I used a small bead roller on these samples. Shafts obstruct and are short. The big bead roller is not so sensitive.
Someone was giving a picture here. The machine had a frame C and the working wheels had a small diameter. The machine did not have classical shafts.

IMG_1224.jpgI meant something like that. Do you have anything better with small wheels?

You could do it as a piece of repousse work.

I back the job with a big ball of Blu Tack, the sticky stuff for hanging pictures on the wall. Grind up and polish some bits of scrap to use as tools and tap the pattern into the surface then chase it in from behind. It works really well.

The method for making these parts is called swaging. It can be accomplished using (relatively) easy to make forms and is carried out with hand tools. David Gardiner's metal shaping video has a chapter on this technique and demonstrates it very well.

I thought something about the fender decoration. U bead roller hinders shafts.
Of course, I'll do it somehow. But I have asked you. Do you have something, for these little details?
Little wheel and high deep.
