stick a fork in it

cat shaped fork holder

The fork is done, filed, sanded, primed, and painted.

shaped canti base

The shape of the canti tab base is more for a functional reason than an aesthetic one.  I refuse to buy things for my bikes, relying more on reusing what I have.  Instead of spending the two bucks on canti tabs,  I cut them out of a wrecked frame that was laying around.  I did this once before and the hardest part was getting the tabs straight with the rest of the fork.  The star shape gave me a place to clamp the tab to the fork and made it that much easier to get them straight.  It also looks quite nice if I do say so myself.
