Bending is a discipline that’s not to be taken lightly.
2d bending is difficult enough but now with 3d I’ve taken it to a whole new level for myself.
Because i’m going for quality, al my tubing is chrome-moly.
For those of you who’ve ever worked with this material, know that is not the easiest material to bend.(understatement)
So by keeping the radius say 90mm with a 25mm tube it’s possible to bend 180 degrees.
I have been very lucky acquiring a mandrel pipe bender that enables me to bend 25mm tube on a less than 60mm radius.
Smaller bends mean more flexibility in your design.
I’ve made a few test bends, but I’ m very happy how my frame turned out first time!
After testfitting and tack welding it in, it was now time for the seat.
