Default How to build girder???

I can't quite figger how to fab these girder fork tubes...
How were they made?
any suggestions?

...for a 26" cruiser bicycle scale...

I was thinking, perhaps, of using muffler tubing and crushing it to oval in a press, then making a V cut, a short one at the top, and musch longer one at the bottom, closing up the V, then welding up... then all the other brackets and stuff...

kind of a lotta work!

But i really like th look of the chief girders! lol

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
