Thanks!

Not much of an update, but rear wheel is on with spacers, need to make a rotor spacer.

But I've been temporarily sidetracked finishing my tube bender so that I cane make the seat frame.

It is a copy od the JD2 bender.  Found the print here http://chopperhandbook.com/bender.htm .  From that I made a DXF and cut it out on the waterjet at work.  I'm boring the 1" hole to 1.25 and turning an aluminum bronze bushing that will keep the inside and outside arms together when swapping dies.  The bushing will also hopefully make the action a little smoother.

Update on the bender.  Main pivot holes are bored to 1.25" and aluminum bronze bushings are turned and fitted.  1" 3.5 clr die set will be here monday.  Now to finish the stand and make some spacers.

Tube bender is basically finished, just a few details to clean up.  But it can bend as is.
