Default Re: 1911 Flying Merkel single build.

Once Bob was available we teamed up on the bronzing and clean up of the tank and tabs for the "oil pump" When I say we, I mean Bob I took pictures and handed him things... First though a little correction to the tank. I'll have brass straps on the underside of the tank but Merkel's of the day had no top tube straps. Looking at photos of em the gas and oil fill holes were brazed /bronzed to the top tube. This tank came with blind threaded BUNGS to attach straps. Had to fill and grind smooth. Then the two oil / gas fill holes were bronzed to the top tube. This thing aint going anywhere

Lots O cleanup to be done on both the welds and brazing. And still a bit more welding to be done. Got some shoulder bolts and nylocks for the swinging stand. These tabs will be welded to the underside of the very stout dropouts.
