Ok folks, it's been a while.

Needed some bent tube - so did nothing for 2 years then bought some tube this week, got an old car wheel

Morning go1000go (Tim) where there is a will; there will be found a way, but I never thought of a old tyre rim as a mould. Looking forward to more pictures of the build.

All bent tubes worked out a treat.

I think the chain will run clear of the rear stay in all gears. :smartass2:

The build is for my brother, he wanted the tractor seat on it.

Trick gear selector location to sort out, and handle bars
