Mocked up the intake today with the new manifold. There's enough of an area to clamp the copper elbow securely into the rubber intake. And then the SU float is at the perfect angle and the carb body clears the head.

That just means the copper elbow has to be soldered to the alloy SU flange.

Due to the weight of the SU I'll make up a decent support from the head. Fortunately there's a couple odd OEM brackets I can use - now redundant.

Just to give me a bit of encouragement !! I should have the frame jig [very basic ] next week so I can start positioning the various lumps to check packaging.

At the moment the plan in my head should work out !!!

We finalised the crude frame jig yesterday. crude but I think effective.

As the top box tube frame section will no longer double up for fuel, I've ordered the much lighter gauge 2" x 2" x 16swg. Hopefully collecting that today.

Once the jig is firmly attached to my bench, I can start the P.O.C. mock up of the main assemblies.

Much better, we'll have the 2" x 2" cut and fettled so that the Bantam headstock sits in the box half way so we can get a neat finish. The box will be fettled at the correct angle to self jig the headstock angle [ 64 degrees ].

The crude [ very ] frame jig mounted and 100% level. Crude but effective.

The POC box has been cut and fettled, and when we're happy with all the measurements and angles, we'll cut the finished 2" x 2" top tube.
The headstock just nestles in nicely and will make for a smooth welded finish.
