The jig is up.

With the jig done, I cut the rear legs off and bent some new ones up. Slugged those f*ckers up and fired up the TIG. Much better.

And now onto the top tube. I always like a bent top tube. Yeah it's a pain in the ass, when it comes time to make a gas tank, but who cares. It's all about profile.

In order for the goosenck to look right, I really had to make a new neck. Sure I could have bought one, but that's not what it's about. So I picked up a small lathe and made one.

Cope some tubing and fire up the tig again.

Throw the engine in the ol' gal and let's see what she looks like. Profile man, profile! Don't mind the bars and headlight, there gonna get shit canned.
