Default Re: "how we do it""

chopped up about ten bikes today-- mostly bmx ---to use as lugs etc.

last week I got about 350 lbs. or curved radiused 1/2 inch square tubing that made around a 4-5 foot circular base for an in the movie theater promotional figure for an up and coming Disney film ---
all from a new buddy who does such work in his shop of 15 employees including vacuum forming and molding ---- scrap iron price $200 per ton

when the shop built over 400 of them --when they set the rolling machine they had several defective ones each time as they dialed in the roller

the curve is just great for bike stuff --you can bend it in a strong vice and a cheater pipe and the rear stays of most cruiser frames fit perfectly inside for any stretches perfect for rear stays and so much more

top tubes and double and triple top tubes just for fun--go crazy with it!!!!!

I hope to build about another dozen frames in the next week or so then sandblast as before

then it is time to figure out which engine for which frame---- any help ccc????

I just love chopping them up and designing how they can go back together with that special umph!!!!!
