Nice work on the pattern development.

Are using the aluminum you pictured a few pages back?

Or if your plan is to braze 3003 is an option too.  It's what most coach builders use.

Thanks, I think I can make the pattern work. It's super easy to draw the tanks in Blender. I'm also working a triple tree top clamp for another bike to possibly have machined somewhere.

Yes, I was planning on the 6061 but after your awesome info I'll look for the 3003 and yes on the brazing.

Thanks!!!!

Had a buddy at work start welding up the seat & supports at lunch today, getting there.

Also started making a new stand for the engine to sit on since the cheapy Harbor Freight plastic dolly broke in half.

7/8" tube inside the 1" tubing as reinforcement for the stand & seat connections.

Went back to the metal supply for 3003. Much of the scrap wasn't labeled but I did find this piece of 5052. It's thin at 22g but I figure it's good for practice forming.

Also attacked the rear wheel with black appliance epoxy so another step towards a rolling frame 👍
