Default Re: Help a newbee, if you feel like it.

OK, another idea. What would be the consensus, if I split copper tubing, and formed it over the front and rear tubes. I may lean toward steam, or dieselpunk themes, so polished copper, or brass would fit. Clamped on with something mechanical looking. Split collars, maybe. Just wondering about strength. Think it would be enough?
Also, Tom, the truing of the wheels would remove some vibes, and, more importantly, shaft/magnet/gear wobble, IF there happens to be any, that is.
I have to say that finding a hobby group where people actually respond, and are courteous, is refreshing. I usually abandon new hobby groups pretty quickly, due to attitude. Bravo Guys!
As always, thanks for the input, H.
