7x7 rack with wraparound crown mount, #1

I’m putting rack mounts on a fork and making a 7×7 rack to go with it. The bicycle it’s going on is going to have caliper brakes so I didn’t want to attach the crown stay to the front of the crown, but I didn’t want a wide boxy wraparound. So I hand-bent a piece of ¼th" tubing to a 6" diameter semicircle and glued it into place instead.

It’s not quite a regular semicircle, but it does add some visual interest to the rack.
