ok sorry about the delay...start off with some 1/2" pvc that comes on a roll like this:
then you cut a length of pvc (i just kinda eyed it) and stick a male-to-male connector piece in that sucker and make a ring...you could use pvc cement if you have it but i just used superglue and a couple of wraps of gaff tape at the seam and its just fine...here's a pic with the aluminum angle-iron used as the crosspiece:
after you have a ring, wrap it up in padded griptape made for mountainbike handlebars...i just grabbed some from REI...after the ring is wrapped good (the sides especially) drill some holes in the aluminum (for a quick release and for attachment to the rig) and use conduit clips to hold the bar to the ring, like this:
then you slap a QR plate on there (or you already have) and you are pretty much done...here she is finished:
if it had a manfrotto plate it would be as good as the real thing only lighter...i'll be back in a minute to put up some more pics - any questions fire away...

nice job.. is it substantially lighter than the genuine-fig??? If so, do you think that would adversly affect it, with the lack of mass to "even everything out?"
