Easy buggy backrest

Needed a backrest on my Peter lynn bitsa buggy, but I don’t have easy (Cheap) access to an engineering workshop anymore, so I came up with an easy diy design.

parts needed: 

1m of 32mm stainless tubing. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/114008760179

2x 32mm tube jointing connector thingys (if someone knows what these are called that would be great) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/123935778624

I do have a cheap pipe bender, so I gave it  bit of a bend.
Sorry @Chook, I should of done your trick of filling with water and freezing so it doesn’t kink, but it a slight bend that nobody will see ?

then Just cut it to length and bolted it on.

All that was left was wrap a pool noodle around it and make a cover.

I have also been gathering the bits I need to build a composite giga axle. But that’s for another day...

The same thing can be achieved by packing the pipe with dry sand, and plugging the ends so the sand doesn't pour out while bending.

I've seen a mate bend a new motorcycle exhaust header pipe this way.

...Well done, by the way!
