I assume you engraved the lettering with a CNC mill, is that right?

In know everyone is impressed by the metalwork to put in his name. However, look at those transitions to make the space for Parker!!! Great work.

This is a unique addition! After I studied the perfection, I hoped the OP checked the front strap thickness before he went to the mill.

Machine checked on a Keller fixture which I modified a little to accommodate various frame radius differences .

When I went to the laser I found out how much was left in valley on this frame.

Like the title says playing around- came up with this idea and kinda liked it .

That is so cool...I'm surprised no one has done that before (at least to my knowledge).
