I thought he wanted it for a *moving* cycle !  Tape
measure'll hardly make the grade.

P.S.  you DON'T need the Hose clamps!  I put the tapes
inside the fittings and secured them with 1" pieces of
the pipe.  A little Deremel action is needed on the
inner stop to allow the tape to have a straight shot. 
With the hairpin match inside, it is much more rugged
as well.  I sent Pix to QST, but haven't heard back
yet on pub.
