Tru tests have 3/4 frames and 7/8 forks.

 

I know a few tru test foamers that will be keen on some wheels

Could you bung some leather in there maybe to fill the gap in the dies?

I am going to do everything in 7/8 on my frames, they will not be trutest copy's, but yes please tell everyone there will be wheels at some stage.

It might cut through it, there is tremendous pressure

Re pipe bending.

Make sure the pipe seam is on the side of the bend, ie. not the inside or outside of the bend. 

Also pipe size is measured inside diameter so the 1 inch die will measure much bigger.

If trying to bend tube you'll need a specific tube bender.

I have ground and filed the 3/4" swage to 7/16" its now a snug fit and supports the sides of the tube.

The 1" swage should measure 25mm but it measures almost 35mm

I have found it dose not really matter where the seam is, but schedule is important, I bent the frame on the red bike using a shitty pipe bender, its made from 27mm OD no problems with nice bends, just have to make sure its a nice fit in the swage

I also picked up this hunk of shit, its kind of cool, home made with 6" rims and home made front and rear drum brakes, it would of had a Villers motor I think. I will change the rear sprocket to run a #420 chain and fit my high compression B&S 5HP. and a new paint job.

Everything is now painted, trying to work out what the brake shoes are off so I can get new ones, rear shoes are missing otherwise I would get new linings bonded on.

I finished the homemade red bike, goes relay well, no shortage of power, motor is a strong runner, still needs a rear brake cable, I have a wooden seat but needs foam and a cover, This frame was built for a Villers 2 stroke and the frame rail was in the way for mounting the B&S but I had the remains of a Masport rotary hoe and whacked off the engine mount witch is adjustable, worked out perfect for this bike to get the engine offset and for adjusting the chain.

 

If anyone comes across a B&S V twin horizontal shaft motor I would be keen for the next project.
