Back in the shop again today. Time to make that lower downtube.
A line was drawn along the top to keep the pipe straight and the tick marks about every 1/4 inch.
The first pass
Back in hossfeld
Second pass. Getting closer.
3rd pass plus the upper part bent to match up to the neck.
I then had this gaping hole that had to be filled from the old downtube.
Found a piece of pipe similar in diameter and cut out a circle about the size of a nickle.
Fits like a glove.
All welded in. Add some paint and no one will ever know. More to come later.
