Thanks man. I reference your build from time to time. Im still trying to find the best place to get a frame hoops. It seems most online still need to be bent to get them to fit.

I had a friend who has a tube bender make mine for me.  If you don't know anyone in that world then see if you can find a custom bike shop near you - a tube bender is a fairly standard piece of machinery for a bike-building shop.  Good luck man

When I lived in southern Louisiana there were oilfield machine shops every block. Up here in Colorado, not so much. Ill have to search around because Id like the pipe to fit perfectly and I think a local shop would be able to give me results based on my exact measurements.

 :o Looks like you are putting in the good work!  That engine looks phenomenal.  Why did you decide not to paint the head? Also, can you tell me what paint you used its gorgeous!!

Can't wait to see more.  Bookmarked.
