Default Re: Building a board track frame from scratch...sort of

I'm in Boston, well Allston actually. Same difference. Me and some buddies finally put together a little shop space just down the street and let me tell you it is quite the step up from working on the fire escape. 'tis a humble shop with naught more than a cheap drill press, welder, cheap as heck tube bender and a small assortment of other tools.

I have checked out before, but I avoid ordering stuff from all the way across the pond if I can. I'm wondering if there is a MA supplier, possibly tubing that is used for something else would end up working great. Plus, I'm going to need some pretty long lengths for this frame. Having just a couple 24' sticks laying around would be real nice.

I chopped the rear triangle and head tube off a mountain bike to use. I'm thinking all I'll have to bend up is the top tube, down tube and that cross tube in the middle. I have some plate to make some custom dropouts out of.
